We have seen a significant increase in the number of Windows 8 Certified systems since general availability at the end of October. There are now more than 1,700 Certified systems for Windows 8 and Windows RT. I suggest reading this post from Nick Parker putting the spotlight on several very cool new Windows 8 PCs announced by our OEM partners this week at CES.

This week we also highlighted strong growth in developers building for Windows 8. Since the opening of the Windows Store the number of apps has quadrupled and we passed the 100 million app download mark - just two months after general availability."
