I think they would be too wary of stock market manipulation charges to out and out lie. Instead they tell a truth that means a little less than it seems:

It's not clear how many people are using Windows 8, because the licences may be sold to PC makers and not yet in use.

The real experts when it comes to playing with sales statistics are at Amazon.

I am using Windows 8 while writing this post.
