Windows XP Tops 210 Million Sales, Says Microsoft.

Microsoft Corp is claiming more than 210 million copies of Windows XP sold since its October 2001 launch, up from 130 million last July. Windows XP averaged 10 million copies sold a month in the last nine months, according to reports yesterday. Last month vice president of world wide sales and marketing Kevin Johnson said Windows XP deployments hadn't met his expectations. After two and half years, Windows XP is installed at about 65% of businesses, although the operating system's prime route to market is believed to be machines shipped by OEMs instead of through sale of packaged product.
