Had Ballmer had the success of Apple that he said he was content without, Microsoft would have sold around 14 million copies in the first four days.
Yes, but they don't want to tell you that 4 Million number includes all the PC's built by Dell, HP, etc etc, that had to be updated that were sitting in stock. I mean, other ones I can think of are corporations IT Departments to update their labs to see how much work they will have to do in next year or two to roll out those win8 systems to general use. Not to mention all the training places, the schools, etc, to "comply" with MS requirements. Also, they are probably adding in all the "shipped" not sold ones as well.
Here is a great example, Toyota to Honda, and the old Camry Vs. Civic...Toyota sells to rent-a-car type places, and Honda does not. So Toyota includes the "fleet" sales into all the numbers, so they have more sold. But in reality, more people own Honda's... it's all about how you spin it... that is all.
