Windows 8 Release Date: Microsoft Windows 8 Three Month Performance Update

Page 1 of 2

Windows 8 Release Date: Now that Windows 8 from Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been available for just about three months, it is time to take a close look at how things are going thus far.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)Fortunately, the Microsoft Blogging Windows blog recently discussed some of the finer details of the first 90 days with Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer Tami Reller.

While the entire interview is worth reading in its entirety, there are specific answers that really stand out.

For example, when Reller was asked to discuss sales, which were reported at more than 60 million licenses last month, she added the following:

“More than 60 million licenses sold is on par with the record setting pace we saw with Windows 7. We feel good about our start with Windows 8 – and of course there is still much more to do.”

In other words, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has not outdone Windows 7 but is definitely keeping the pace. While Reller does not lead on that the company is disappointed, one has to wonder if they believed the Windows 7 numbers would be eclipsed.

Now, for the question that a lot of people are wondering. Reller was asked to discuss how people are taking to Windows 8 on touch devices.

“Touch is a key component of Windows 8 as it enables devices to unlock even more of the benefit of Windows 8. From tablets, to touch laptops, to all-in-one PCs, customer interest in new touch form factors is increasing. To meet this interest, we’ve been working with our partners to ensure that we have products to meet customer demand. Together, we’ve made progress and the trajectory of touch devices continues to grow. Partners are working hard to bring stunning innovation to market across a broad spectrum of tablets, convertibles, touch laptops & Ultrabooks, and all-in-one PCs. And, for traditional PCs, Windows 8 PCs are the best PCs ever – faster, more efficient, better battery life, and access to the ever-growing lineup of Windows 8 apps in the Windows Store. Watch for some great new products on shelf this spring!”
