    I am truly skeptical about these stats. Licenses sold is simply not "copies in use". Easy as that.

    W3C seem to come closer to the truth, but still, this is based on what their web counters see, so take it with a grain of salt. We will never know the true numbers.

    That doesn't stop people from using W8 (DP, CP, RP and Ent) to surf the Internet.
