Joe Belfiore, who is the head of platform at Microsoft, for smartphones, tablets and desktop devices, recently confirmed that there will be a spring update to Windows 8.1. Speaking to the audience, Belfiore also spoke about other interesting details, such as the fact that there are now 4 million daily downloads in the Windows Store.

This means that there are more than 120 million downloads of Windows Store applications and almost 1.5 billion downloads per year. However, Belfiore didn’t let us know how many apps are there in the Windows Store. And we know how big the problem is with cloned apps, so quantity is nothing to brag about unless there is real quality with these apps.

The Microsoft executive also said that Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 have a larger market share than all versions of Apple’s OS X. Also, more than 40% of Windows 8 devices that have been sold in the USA are touch enabled.
