Number Of Windows 7 Licenses Sold Crosses 150 Million

Microsoft has announced that the company has sold over 150 million copies of Windows 7 ever since the new operating system was launched in October 2009. With a selling rate of close to 1 license every second, Microsoft claims that Windows 7 is the fastest selling operating system in history.

The announcement comes exactly two months after Redmond announced the sale of 100 million licenses. Exclaiming that the success has been largely due to the interest shown in the latest OS among corporates, the Microsoft blog reads,

“Approximately 75 percent of enterprises are looking at Windows 7 for their organization, and of course people continue to be excited about the features and benefits of Windows 7, and the PCs that our partners are delivering for Windows 7”

The company expects to sell close to 300 million licenses by the end of this year.
