Today has been a big day for Microsoft as Microsoft CMO/CFO Tami Reller took to the company blog to announce that it “recently” sold its 100 millionth Windows 8 license since the OS launched in October. This comes as a rather happy announcement seeing how PC sales have been dropping of late thanks to the tablet boom.
While the sale of the 100 millionth licence of Windows 8 may initially sound really good, truth remains that the sales have significantly slowed down since the initial drop-off period in January. Microsoft doesn’t seem too worried though, saying that even though the growth may be slow, it is still there. Windows Marketplace has grown six times since its launch and the rate at which users have been downloading apps for Windows 8 through the marketplace has also seen a significant rise.
