Microsoft's selling these faster than ever.
Along with the reveal of big revenues, Microsoft also announced that Windows 7 is selling quite well. Yes, the great sales of Windows 7 helps drive the revenue, so it should be no surprise that Microsoft have moved 175 million copies of the OS.
"This continues our record breaking pace of more than 7 copies sold per second. And as of today – Windows 7 is now running on more than 16% of all PCs worldwide," Brandon LeBlanc, Microsoft community manager, blogged. "It's exciting to see this kind of response from customers who have helped make Windows 7 the fastest selling operating system in history."
Thanks to the bundling of Internet Explorer 8 with Windows 7, Microsoft boasts that IE8 is the fastest growing and most popular web browser in the market.
