Corporate VP of Corporate Communications, Frank Shaw, has posted Microsoft by the numbers in which he provides some valuable insight into Microsoft state of business. And he compares the numbers with many of Microsoft competitors. The blog posts also include source information.

For example:

  • 150 million Windows 7 licenses sold in 8 months.
  • 96% of US netbooks running Windows in 2009.
  • 10,000 paying customers running on Windows Azure in June 2010.

For those interested in the competitive landscape, check out Microsoft by the numbers on the Microsoft blog.
