Windows 7 @1 – More than 240 Million Licenses Sold, Running On 93 Percent of New Consumer PCs

Happy! 1st anniversary Windows 7!. To celebrate Windows 7 at one year, Microsoft released new numbers, claiming that the company has sold 240 million licenses of the product to date.

“Windows 7 is the fastest selling operating system in history. As of September, Windows 7 was running on 93% of new consumer PCs and has over 17% global OS market share (according to Net Applications as of October 1st). There is an amazing array of great PCs out on the market today. Six months after launch, 100% (over 18,000) of our OEM partners were selling Windows 7 PCs versus 70% for Windows Vista PCs at a comparable time period.”

Earlier this year, analysts were estimating that Microsoft might hit the 300-million-sold number with Windows 7 licenses by the end of this calendar year.
