240 Million Windows 7 Licenses Sold In First Year

Microsoft has announced that to day, 240 million Windows 7 licenses have been sold, one year after its launch. According to Microsoft in a blog post, Windows 7 is their fastest selling Operating System so far. As of September, 2010, Windows 7 was running on 93% of new consumer PCs and according to Net Applications, as of 1st October, 2010, Windows 7 holds over 17% global OS market share. These are impressive figures, of course.

Earlier in the year, people in the industry have predicted that Microsoft could well sell 300 million Windows 7 licenses by the end of 2010. They are closing in on that number already. Unfortunately, I am part of this statistics having just purchased a Windows 7 desktop. It has served me well, though, so no complaints.
