With still a month left until Windows 8 is made commercially available, I was surprised to hear yesterday that there are already 16 million devices running Windows 8 (via @TommyLee). I was also surprised to see that in Canada, there are already over 2000 apps available in the Windows Store. This might not sound like much, but it is double the number of apps available less than a month ago. These look like good signs for the Windows 8 ecosystem. I am hoping to see the number of apps continue to grow quickly between now and official launch (and beyond).
