Microsoft have revealed that Windows 8, although still unpopular largely with gamers, appears to be making huge overall gains. The OS has just passed the 100 million licenses mark — up from the 60 million mark in January — and shows no signs of slowing down.
The company is keen to stress that a huge amount of this growth is on the PC, saying that the PC is “very much alive and increasingly mobile”.
“The PC is also part of a much broader device market of tablets and PCs. Windows 8 was built to fully participate in this broader and increasingly mobile device market. The PC part of the market is rapidly evolving to include new convertible devices and amazing new touch laptops, and all-in-ones,” said Tami Reller.
Reller also revealed that Windows Blue — the codename for an update coming later this year — will deliver “the latest new innovations across an increasingly broad array of form factors of all sizes, display, battery life and performance, while creating new opportunities for our ecosystem”. What that means for you, the PC gamer, is yet to be determined.
