Microsoft Sells 240 Million Copies of Windows 7 in 1st Year

Posted by at 9:23 am on October 21, 2010

Microsoft  today released Windows 7 sales figures just before  the one-year anniversary of Windows 7 of the OS releases.    Over the  first year Micrsoft has sold  240 million licenses of the Windows 7. The OS is Microsoft’s fastest selling OS. It was helped by overcoming much of the negative reputation earned by Vista, as every Windows PC builder was using 7 within half a year where 30 percent had avoided Vista in its first six months.

The company  continues to  sell the vast majority of licenses attached to new computers and  still needs to work on corporate adpoation.   A key to Windows 7  take up rate  has been its improved performance on netbooks and low-end systems, where Vista rarely ran well. Much broader backwards compatibility also proved an edge by dodging the lack of support that plagued Vista for much of its life.
