100 million Windows 8 licenses sold worldwide



Tami Reller, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Windows, announced in an interview published in the Windows blog that they have already sold 100 million licenses for Windows 8 worldwide.

“We recently surpassed the 100 million licenses sold mark for Windows 8. This number includes Windows licenses that ship on a new tablet or PC, as well as upgrades to Windows 8. This is up from the 60 million license number we provided in January,” says Reller. “We’ve also seen the number of certified devices for Windows 8 and Windows RT grow to 2,400 devices, and we’re seeing more and more touch devices in the mix.”

Reller also tells Mashable, “Upgrade season was pretty much over in January once all the offers expired. So pretty much all of the growth from 60 to 100 [million] is new PCs.”

Windows Store, meanwhile, has reached more than 60,000 available apps.
