Windows 7: 300 Million Sold Copies in 2010. Yes, itís more than possible.
Microsoft has officially announced the sales target for the latest version of the Windows client, and, while extremely high, it is in no way beyond the companyís reach. Speaking at the CeBIT Global Conference, in Hanover, Germany on March 4, 2010, Microsoft Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner revealed that the software giant aimed to sell in excess of 300 million copies of Windows 7
by the end of 2010. And the fact of the matter is that, considering Windows 7ís success on the market so far, the 300-million mark is a realist goal. After all, Microsoft has a hit on its hands, and has already sold 90 million copies of Windows 7
in the first four months since the OS was released.
