240 million licenses and counting
It's been a year since Microsoft introduced Windows 7, which has gone on to become the fastest selling OS in history.

Redmond sold 240 million licenses in the first year of sales, not counting illegal copies and easily eclipsing its predecessor by selling a mind boggling 7.5 copies per second.
