Windows 7 was officially launched to the public October 22nd, 2009. Tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of the launch. So, how did it do in that one year? Extremely well, I’d say, with 240 Million licenses sold. Congrats, Microsoft, and Happy Birthday to Windows 7!
“I think Windows 7 has exceeded expectations,” said Gavriella Schuster, general manager of Windows Product Management. “People from the very beginning have had an optimistic forecast. I actually felt in the beginning we needed to temper expectations a bit… but a year later, we’re on track. We’re right where we thought we would be. It’s been a good year – it’s a year to celebrate.”
