    Microsoft says 60 mln Windows 8 licenses sold in ten weeks (Plus may be similar number of Windows 7 as well)

    Let us do the numbers: 60Million windows 8 + 60Million Windows 7 = 120Million * $40/seat (minimum) = 4.8Billion just on Dec Quarter Windows license sales. Add prior Q deferred to be recognized of $800Million that makes it 5.6Billion. Then add any and all Surface RT sales. Surface sold a minimum of 800K units. At 600ASP/unit for a total 480M minimum. Conservatively 6Billion from Windows & Windows Live division and that is a 87% growth sequentially and 27% growth year over year. The first time Winows division growing that much in three years.... looking for fireworks after earnings!!! [Note Microsoft already said they had some great sales on HALO4, Xbox etc... again let us see the fireworks on Jan24th after earnings
