http://techcrunch.com – Microsoft announced that it has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses so far. This is the first update the company has given since it announced that it had sold 4 million upgrades over the first weekend after Windows 8 went on sale earlier this month. According to Microsoft, “Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades.” A Microsoft spokesperson said the 40 million licenses sold accounts for all sales, including those to OEMs and other partners. It’s fair to assume then that quite a few of these licenses haven’t actually found their way to users yet. Today&#8217 (IT news)
