Gates on Vista: 100 million served

Sales of the Vista operating system have hit the 100 million-mark, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates said Sunday night at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, in what is expected to be his last keynote address.

Microsoft has not broken down what percentage of those sales were from enterprise customers but the company said that 96 percent of all Windows PCs sold through retail are now based on Vista, up from 77 percent last February, shortly after the official launch of Microsoft's latest client operating system.
