      60 million may be the worldwide distribution of devices and upgrade licenses sold to manufacturers and users who took advantage of the low-cost upgrades. Resellers would have these licenses for the most part. How many are sold and activated may also be deceiving, as downgrades will take place after Windows 8 is activated, even if the user never actually uses Windows 8 at all after activation.

      A telling figure would be licenses distributed minus downgrades and reversions to Windows 7. But don’t expect Microsoft to publicize this statistic.
