WinHEC 2004: Microsoft Sells 210 Million Copies of Windows XP

WinHEC 2004: Microsoft Sells 210 Million Copies of Windows XP "The day before opening its Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) 2004 trade show in Seattle, Microsoft announced that it has sold 210 million copies of Windows XP, most of which were bundled with new PCs. However, Microsoft also noted that actual XP usage is far higher than that figure, because its sales figures don't include copies of XP bundled with new machines under corporate licenses.
The last time Microsoft released sales figures for XP was July 2003, when the company announced that it had sold 130 million copies of the operating system. Microsoft notes that it is selling approximately 10 million copies of Windows XP every month now, and sales are actually accelerating month-over-month; last July, the company was averaging 6 million copies of XP each month."
