Microsoft says it has sold 1.5 million upgrade versions of Windows 98 outside the US, with Japan leading the queue.
Despite the Asian slump, 250,000 retail copies of Windows 98 were sold in the first 48 hours after the software was launched in Japan, said Microsoft.
The company claims Windows 98 sales to consumers are exceeding expectations, and are stimulating hardware sales as well. For instance, sales of USB (Universal Serial Bus) peripherals in Japan are up since the launch of Windows 98, which supports USB.
