Windows 7 sales speed up in 2011


Recommended Posts

A year and a half after it's debut on the market Windows 7 has sold more than 350 million licenses. Microsoft has said that Windows 7 is the "fastest selling Operating System in history." Windows 7 had an amazing launch when it debuted in October of 2009. But the momentum has picked up here in 2011. According to analysts, Windows 7 launch sales were 234% higher than Windows Vista. Just short of one year from the initial launch, Windows 7 had already sold more than 175 million licenses.

Breaking that down, it took eleven months for the first 175 million licenses to sell and only seven months for the second 175 million. If you were to break that down to a per-day sale that would be approximately 297,600 more copies of Windows 7 being sold per day.
