All of them have been sold, are in use and Microsoft collected the money.
Tell me again how that difference matters in the slightest?
* Company X has 23,000 employees
* Company X buys a Windows site license from MS, for price Y
* Price Y happens to be for companies w/ 25,000 - 50,000 seats
* MS gets to book $Y
* MS gets to claimed 50,000 copies of Vista has been sold
That sounds like a falsehood to me. Nobody would get away with that.
