Microsoft has today unveiled that is has sold more than 40 million Windows 8 licences since its launch just a month ago, and that Windows 8 upgrades are currently beating the previous post launch of Windows 7 when it launched.
Microsoft explained that 4 million Windows 8 licenses where sold in the first three days after its October 28th launch, and the total of 40 million is expected to include OEM, Surface units, and individual consumer sales.
Microsoft has also announced that a number of Windows 8 applications have now passed the $25,000 revenue mark, enabling their developers to benefit from paying just 20 percent rather than the going rate of 30 percent of application sales.
It will be interesting to see how many Surface tablets Microsoft has sold, since it launch, numbers for which have still yet to be revealed by Microsoft, but as always we will keep you updated.
