Windows 8 Clocks-Up Over One Million Downloads in 24 Hours

By Sam Gibbs on at

People sure do seem to love Windows 8, or at least an OS they can download for free that’s not Linux. It might help that it’s new and shiny, and by the looks of it, is pretty good too. Still, being downloaded over one million times in just 24 hours is pretty impressive.

Microsoft let the world know through a tweet yesterday – not bad indeed for a day’s work. I know what I’m going to be doing this weekend; that unloved PC box in the corner isn’t going to know what hit it. [Twitter via PCMag]
