According to Microsoft, there have been 106 million copies of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) distributed since August 6. The vast majority of these, 90 million, were pushed to users via Automatic Update/Windows Update. Another 16 million were distributed via CD. Preloads on new PCs and copies purchased at retail have yet to kick into the total. The Redmondians estimate there are 300 million XP users in total.
