Microsofts Steve Ballmer Says 500 Million People Will Have Windows 8 By 2013
According to Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer, he is expecting Windows 8 to become extremely popular as he has announced that he estimates there will be over 500 million people using the new version of Microsoft’s Windows OS by the end of 2013.
Microsoft is expected to launch Windows 8 around October of 2012, which would give the company just over a year to reach their goal of 500 million users for Windows 8.
Whether or not Microsoft will be able to reach this goal of 500 million users for Windows 8 remains to be seen, it is possible as Windows 8 looks pretty good from what we have seen so far.
And considering Microsoft intends to make Windows 8 available for tablets as well as PCs it would not be impossible for them to reach 500 million users by the end of 2013.
