Windows 8 doing rather well... in India

Written by Nick Farrell



Surprise sales


While some of us are wondering if there is any point upgrading to Windows 8, Microsoft says the operating system is making a killing in India.

Microsoft said response in India to the recently-launched Windows 8 has been overwhelming. Microsoft Corporation India Chairman Bhaskar Pramanik said the figures were high not just in terms of downloads but in terms of foot-falls we have seen in all its stores, all across the country.

Some of this is due to the high Indian content with Windows 8. There were a large number of Indian apps built in the country for Windows 8. At last month's AppFest developers built, designed and tested apps for the Windows platform. Pramanik said that they created nearly 700 apps, of which 300 are in the process of getting into the Windows Store.
