Six months later, 100 million Windows 8 licenses sold


A Q&A session with Windows division Chief Marketing Officer and CFO Tami Reller, which took a loot at how Microsoft’s Windows 8 is doing after 6 months out in the wild, has revealed that the company has passed the 100 million license mark for the new OS.

Back in November last year Windows 8 had reached 40 million copies, by January this year Microsoft was reporting 60 million units licensed and as of now the operating system has breached the 100 million milestone. On top of that, there have been some 250 million apps downloaded from Microsoft’s app store in the past six months and Reller says that “almost 90% of our app catalog has been downloaded every month.”

Other figures that Reller in the Q&A included SkyDrive’s usage numbers, which stands at 250 million and that the company now has 400 million accounts active.
