Well, looks like it’s official: iTunes for Windows is a hit. Apple today announced that there have been one million downloads of the Windows iTunes jukebox since it was announced on Thursday. I’m sure at the next keynote, Steve will give us a stat of how many downloads per minute that is, but I think it’s safe to say that a LOT of Windows users are checking out iTunes.
Of course, the best way to check out iTunes is to load in some of your personal library and then take a trip over to the Music Store. Apparently Windows users did just that and have also downloaded one million songs since Thursday. If you remember, it took about a week to sell that many songs back in late April/early May. So, the process has definitely sped up a bit.
A million iPods, a million Windows downloads (and counting), millions of songs purchased through the iTunes Music Store. Apple is on fire. This is a huge time for us Mac fans. And I think we should all get together and give a big welcome to Windows users (and don’t forget the I-told-you-so’s!).
I could use a million, how about you?
