    Windows 8 license sales hit 60 million


    Microsoft has sold 60 million Windows 8 licenses, a sales bump of 20 million units since late November when Windows 8 hit 40 million licenses sold. Microsoft’s sales number includes upgrades and sales to its manufacturing partners since it introduced the new touch-centric operating system 10 weeks ago, the company said at an event during CES Tuesday. Microsoft says the sales trajectory is similar to Windows 7. Microsoft in 2010 called Windows 7 the fastest-selling operating system in history after it sold more than 60 million licenses within the first 74 days of sales.
