TheVerge reports that Microsoft has sold over 60 million licences of Windows 8. Not an exact reflection of users as this is the numbers sold as upgrades and OEM licences. But still apparently on the same track as W7. Whilst PC was very strong with cheap netbooks all the rage, new PC’s are fighting tablets and less of the urge to upgrade after only just moving or buying a W7 computer. On the upside, for those with recent enough purchases on W7, there is a discounted W8 upgrade which has enticed quite a lot it seems to make the early move to tiles.

I’m not too fussed on W8 myself at the moment (not much use without touch, I think but then again I’ve not really used it) but it’s success is definitely critical to assisting adoption of tiles/Metro UI, the soul of WP/WP7.5/WP8 in Nokia Lumia.

Should Nokia ever bring out the much rumoured tablet in Windows flavour, it would be good to have a receptive audience to try their bigger screened innovations.
