With the recent announcement of its Q4 results, Microsoft has surpassed Apple in quarter sales performance, leaving no doubt about company’s future objective and road map. With $16.04 Billion Revenue in last quarter, company has also announced magical figure of Windows Licenses which has been sold in last nine months :- 175 Million Copies. Approximate 15 Million each month. Amazing!!!

Just few days back we heard about Apple’s financial performance which stands much closer to Microsoft. With the recent announcement on Windows 7 sales performance, Microsoft wiped away any doubts about its fiscal outlook with a record-breaking Q4 earnings report, primarily driven by sales of Windows 7 and Office 2010. In fact, Microsoft is reporting that more than 175 million copies of Windows 7 were sold in just nine months, making it the fastest-selling OS in the company’s history.

Windows 7 was released to customer on 22 October 2009, exactly nine months ago. Right after launch, its sales outperformed Vista by 234% and carved out a 10% share of the market by February. Just a month ago, the company announced that it had already sold 150 million units, or seven copies of Windows 7 per second.

The sale of 175 million copies in just nine months is nothing short of impressive. On average, that’s nearly 20 million copies sold per month. If you do the math, it means that Windows 7 sales increased in volume from June to July.

With these kind of sale numbers, it’s easy to see why Microsoft posted its best fiscal year yet. The desktop isn’t going away anytime soon. With its clear dominance in OS & Office software space, Microsoft is a clear winner from last 20 years and no near by contender can be seen in coming 10 years. Despite of multiple criticism on its monopoly over market and multiple suits filed by many vendors, company still drives the market without any much hurdle. Customers across the globe have made their thumbs up for the latest release of Windows 7 unlike Windows Vista.
