How is Windows 8 going for Microsoft after a year on the market? Well, Microsoft's Executive Vice President of Marketing, Tami Reller, spoke at a Goldman Sachs technology conference yesterday, where he said: "We've surpassed 200 million licenses now on Windows 8, which is pretty stunning".

This seems like a lot, and it is - especially when you compare the numbers against Windows 7 after a year in consumers' HDDs. Windows 7 at this point in time had sold over 240 million licenses, but with Windows 8 not being received anywhere near as well as its predecessor, it's doing quite well at this point in its lifecycle.
