Microsoft: sales of Vista twice as fast as XP

Vista Sales Double XP

Sales of Windows Vista are more than growing twice as quickly as for XP, Microsoft said today. The software developer noted that over 20 million copies had been sold in only the first month, more than doubling the 17 million Windows XP had sold in two months after its release in 2001. The figures are slightly better than expected and are helped by a surprising number of users buying premium editions such as Vista Ultimate, Microsoft added.

The record contradicts the firm's own dire warnings from just a month earlier, which had told investors that expectations for strong Windows sales were "out of whack" with reality. No mention was made, however, of how many of these sales were for upgrade copies instead of systems preloaded with the new OS.
