I guess that 85 million copy figure I used earlier was off a bit, or a ton if you factor in Microsoft's biggest market, corporations:
Windows Vista's numbers keep growing, with Microsoft Corp. saying Thursday that it has now shipped 88 million copies of the operating system, almost double the number of copies of XP in the same amount of time at its launch.
In late July, Microsoft said it had hit the 60 million shipment mark with Vista.
Microsoft had previously said that it had shipped 20 million copies of Vista in its first month and 40 million copies of Vista in the first 100 days.
Three-quarters of the copies sold of Vista were higher-priced 'premium' versions, compared to 59 percent of the copies of Windows -- primarily XP -- available a year ago.
The 88 million figure mostly includes Vista-installed PCs bought by consumers and small businesses, as well as packaged copies of Vista sold in stores or online.It does exclude the tens of millions of Windows corporate volume licenses ... Nevertheless, revenue from companies renewing their volume licenses for Windows, which gives them the right to upgrade to Vista, was up 27 percent.
Also some interesting Xbox numbers:
Halo 3 generated $330 million in revenue;
Xbox 360 console unit sales increased 90 percent, driven by a price cut in August and Halo 3-related demand;
