More than 100 million Windows 7 licenses have been sold since the launch in October 2009.
More than 10% of all PCs worldwide are running Windows 7 today, making Windows 7 by far the fastest-selling operating system in history.
The announcement was made as part of announcements around Microsoft’s Third Quarter Revenue.
“Business customers are beginning to refresh their desktops and the momentum of Windows 7 continues to be strong,” said Kevin Turner, chief operating officer. “We are also seeing tremendous interest in our market-leading cloud services for business.”
