Despite the rather mild response of analysts and critics towards Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8, it seems to have taken off on a good start. According to the figures revealed by Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer, the company has sold 4 million copies in 4 days, since the release of the OS on Friday.


Windows 8

That is definitely an impressive figure, but not ground-breaking yet. Four million copies in 4 days essentially means that the opening week is continuing at a rate of one million copies per day. That figure may sound huge but it is really tiny when compared to Microsoft’s overall user base, which has reached 1.25 billion users lately.

However, I would not be surprised if Windows 8 sales got better in the coming days. The reason why I think this so is simple – with the new interface and all new looks, many users of earlier Windows versions are wary of switching to Windows 8. They are waiting on users who have already purchased the OS to give their feedback. Once they have sufficient ratings or reviews which praise Windows 8, these users may finally make the switch to Windows 8. So, while we have seen a strong start for Windows 8 in terms of sales, we are yet to see that billion-strong user base shuffling its feet.

Steve Ballmer had earlier claimed that within one year, Windows 8 will be used by 400 million users. That claim may sound right given Windows is used by more than a billion users. But that greatly depends on the initial response of the users towards Windows 8. So far, the response has been fairly positive.
