that Windows 7 sales are growing steadily and Microsoft has apparently sold 175 million copies since launch. At the moment, some 16 percent of PCs worldwide use Microsoft’s latest OS.
Just last month Redmond confirmed sales of 150 million units, so it turns out that 25 million copies were sold in about a month’s time. This is somewhat surprising considering we are speaking about June, a traditionally slow sales month.
Impressive Windows 7 sales seem to have helped Microsoft post record earnings a few days ago. Revenues topped out at $16 billion, 22 percent higher compared to the same period last year.
