Microsoft had not released any sales figures for Windows 8 other than saying the company sold 4 million upgrade licenses of the operating system to those with previous versions of Windows during the first three days it was available. Microsoft launched Windows 8 commercially on October 26.
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.
