Wikipedia states that "60 million Windows 8 licenses have been sold" as far back as January of 2013. Furthermore, according to Alex Wilhelm of, Windows 8 reached 8 percent market share in September of 2013. With these figures in mind, I've been doing some testing with Windows 8 to get more familiar with the operating system. Nobody at my business has deployed it yet and we're happily running Windows 7 at my house, so this was the first time I really got a hands-on look at Microsoft's new OS.
