Even with its small and homogenous sample size, the survey quite mirrors the reality in Africa.
“Around five million PCs are shipped into Africa’s consumer segment every year. But by our estimates, only about one-third (1.5 million) include genuine software,” said Deniz Ozen, Regional General Manager, Consumer and Device Sales, Microsoft Middle East & Africa.
Ozen said this during a press conference held on Wednesday at the Microsoft South Africa headquarters in Bryanston, Johannesburg.
