After One Month, Windows 8 is Already on Track To Outsell Windows 7

Windows 8 had mixed reviews, but when it comes to sales it just crushed every other OS in the market. Microsoft sold nearly 40 Million copies of Windows 8 in a month.

What's ridiculously great is, Windows 8 can beat Windows 7 in coming months.

The Next Web has a very good analysis. 

Windows 7 launched on October 22, 2009. In January 2010, Microsoft revealed that through the second quarter (ended December 31, 2009), the company had sold “over 60 million Windows 7 licenses making it the fastest selling operating system in history.”
That means 60 million licenses sold in just over two months, or 70 days. Broken down on a day-by-day basis, that’s more than 857,142 licenses sold per day.
Windows 8 launched on October 26, 2012. On November 27, Microsoft revealed that it has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses so far.
That means 40 million licenses sold in just over a month, or 32 days. Broken down on a day-by-day basis, that’s more than 1,250,000 licenses sold per day. That’s 45.8 percent higher than Windows 8.
Note that the latest Windows 8 numbers were not revealed as part of a quarterly earnings release, meaning that Microsoft thinks they are quite good. Compared to Windows 7, which is the top dog, Microsoft is right.
