I just received word from one of my contacts at Microsoft that gave me a couple of additional pieces of info beyond the 60 million Windows 8 licenses being sold so far for the new operating system.

Everyone knows that Microsoft introduced the Windows Store with the release of Windows 8 as a repository of modern applications that Windows 8 users can download.

They tell me that not only has the number of apps in the Windows Store quadrupled since GA on 26 October 2012 but they added 10,000 new apps in the last month alone.

The other tidbit is in the headline – 100 million app downloads from the Windows Store since the new OS released in late October.

Reminds me of a movie I once watched and the key line that was in it – If you build it they will come.
