Thumbs up Windows 8 outsold Windows 7 in 4 days

After 4 days since launch Windows 8 sold over 4 million copies that translate into 1 million copies everyday outsell Windows 7. In 3 months could see 90 millions Windows 8 sold outpaced 90 million Windows 7 in 6 months after launch.

Microsoft can finally celebrate after successful Windows 8 launch when some tiny minority opinions claimed Windows 8 will be a failure because they removed Start button and hated Metro. Looked what happened with Xbox 360, it has Metro UI too and it was not doomed to failure, it is world number 2 best selling console sold over 70 million units to date so more than 70 millions people don't have problem with Metro.
