6X since launch, offering more apps than iOS had available after its first year. She also passed along the news that 250 million Windows Store apps have been downloaded. Meanwhile, the number of certified devices for Windows 8 and Windows RT is up to 2,400 with more touch screen devices being added to the roster.
Finally, Microsoft said that 100 million licenses have been sold for Windows 8, up from the 60 million licenses sold by January. This figure includes licenses that are shipped along with a new PC or tablet, as well as devices updated to Windows 8.

I wish you best luck, MS. And also hope that the Blue update contains some more useful additions as well. I am not yet jumping to MS boat yet only because I don't find a capable audio player like PowerAMP or video player like MX there. I despatately need subtitle support in my vids, and features like gapless playback, RG, good EQ in my audio player. Otherwise, WP is one fantastic choice (WP8)

Wait for VLC player to come to WP then. Im waiting for 8 incher windows 8 tabs, and i can get rid of my android tab. The stock video player cant handle 10-bit encoding for matroska well and shows all kinds of artifacts occasionally during playback, and im not happy with the third party video players. Once i have Windows 8 on a compact tab i can happily go back to KMPlayer which has no problems handling all my thousands of vids and movies.
