Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, who was speaking at a forum in Seoul, South Korea predicted that more than 500 million people will be using Windows 8 by the end of 2013.
Mr Ballmer described Windows 8 as the “deepest, broadest, and most impactful” operating system the company has made to date.
He promised the “best economic opportunity” for hardware makers and Metro application developers who opt to support the upcoming operating system.
That’s quite a number (500 million) but then again, he’s the evangelist in chief.
That’s his job.
