Windows 8 sells 40 million copies to date, faster adoption than Windows 7

For developers the news looked promising as well. Since the launch of the Windows Store, Microsoft reported that several apps have already passed the $25,000 revenue threshold and that the number of apps in the store has doubled. Ms. Reller pointed out that developers keep 80% of the revenue made from their apps for the lifetime of the app. That is sure to pique the interest in would-be developers for the platform.
Microsoft also made it a point to mention that the company was doing as much as it could to entice Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 8 by providing an upgrade assistant which verifies if your current hardware is compatible. A pretty pretty attractive price point is offered as well, upgrading to Windows 8 Pro can cost as little as $39.99.

upgraded my old laptop (originally windows xp pre-installed) from window 7 and I think windows 8 runs better on my old laptop than it ran windows 7.

Windows 8 is the best windows version so far, many many bugs have been fixed, it is a lot faster than Windows 7. Even windows xp has tons of bugs

Thank God Ms sold 40mil.I was beginning to think the retards complaining about windows 8 was going to slow down sales. Ms did a good job with win8.only very dump retards will complain about it. Its lively,its fast and its clean. It gives you a new way to interact with the desktop OS. I don't know what more you retards want?
