Windows 8 pre-order storms to top of Amazon Best Sellers list


That did not take long. There has been a lot of speculation about muted demand for Windows 8, so it must be of some reassurance to Microsoft that pre-orders for the Windows 8 Pro DVD edition at $69.99 has stormed to the top of Amazon’s Best Sellers list and has been sitting there for the last 4 days, despite a much cheaper download option being available.

Microsoft has projected that they will sell 400 million copies of Windows 8 over the next year, and is in the process of spending $1.5 billion on advertising the new operating system. I suspect this showing is just the start of shutting the critics up.
