The only reason Microsoft has sold so many copies of Windows 8 Upgrades is because they have made them so cheap. I wonder what will happen when the prices return to normal with the elimination of the $40 downloads the $14.99 upgrades for recently purchased PCs next year?
Also, how many people have purchased Windows 8 vs how many have installed it vs. how many are using it on a daily basis?
How many Windows 8 purchases are being used on Macs for the not so daily tasks that may require windows?
How many NEW windows PCs are being sold each day vs. how many NEW macs?
If we look at all of these numbers, I think we would see that Microsoft is actually struggling to hold on right now and I think that they will ultimately fail.

Ok.. Apple is "low volume". But they still got a fortune in the bank and are worth more than Microsoft. They might not have high market share, but they sure are doing something right!

What MS does not say, is that a big number of these sales are OEM licences sold with new hardware to companies, who will probably use Windows Seven or XP on the hardware.

If we compared apples to apples, we just need to say, "Apple has sold more devices which run it's OS than Microsoft has -- ever."
