Microsoft Corp. has announced that it had managed to sell 150 million licenses of Microsoft Windows 7 operating system released last October, which essentially makes the new OS the fastest selling operating system in the world.

“First off, we are excited to announce that Windows 7 has sold 150 million licenses to-date. As I’ve said before, Windows 7 is the fastest selling operating system in history with 7 copies of Windows 7 sold every second,” said Brandon LeBlanc, a spokesman for Microsoft, in a blog post.

Approximately 75% of enterprises are looking at Windows 7 for their organization, according to Microsoft. Moreover, since the economic situation gets brighter, consumers are accelerating the pace of buying new personal computers, which virtually all come with Windows 7 pre-installed.

According to estimates of IDC, sales of personal computers will total 355 million units in 2010, which means that around a million of personal computers is sold daily. As a result, it is not a surprise that over six months after the introduction Microsoft may claim 150 million copies of Windows 7 sold.
