Microsoft Windows 7 sales hit 600 million mark

June 6th, 2012 at 9:50 PM

Windows 8 may indeed be Microsoft’s biggest launch ever but that hasn’t stopped the company from  making plenty of cash from Windows 7. Speaking at Computex in South Korea Wednesday, Microsoft exec Steven Guggenheimer said that the company has sold 600 million Windows 7 license sales so far, or 50% more than the 400 million licenses Microsoft said it had sold just last July. With Windows 7 in such wide use, Guggenheimer also touted Microsoft’s upgrade program that offers to upgrade your Windows 7 PC to Windows 8 for just $14.99 if you purchase it between now and January 31st, 2013. And of course, Guggenheimer spent much of his keynote hyping up Windows 8 to infinity and beyond, calling the new OS “the biggest launch… in Microsoft’s history” that would herald “a massive wave of software and services coming to market that we think will delight customers, from Windows Azure, to Office 15, Xbox games, Skype and Bing.”
