In one year, Windows 7 closing in on a quarter billion sold

Cakes are nice and all, but phenomenal sales figures are even sweeter. That's what Microsoft is celebrating today.

Over at the Windows Team Blog, Brandon LeBlanc reports that Windows 7 has sold more than 240 million copies so far. That's not too shabby for just over a year on the market. The post also goes on to say that Windows 7's global market share is closing in on 20%.

While the numbers are impressive thus far, don't forget that most businesses won't be jumping on the Win7 bandwagon until SP1 is released -- which should happen early next year.

It'll be interesting to see if Windows 7 sales can keep up their current pace. What's the daily average work out to? About 630,000 or so? Dang.
