    Default Windows 7 becomes fastest selling OS in history

    http://geeksmack.net/index.php/indus...-os-in-history

    Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that Windows 7 has become the fastest selling operating system in history. Craig Beilinson, the Director of Marketing for the company’s Entertainment and Devices Division, also agrees. Neither Ballmer nor Beilinson shared actual unit sales numbers, but Beilinson did have evidence to back him up.

    PC sales nearly jumped 50% during the week of Windows 7’s launch over the week before; Black Friday also brought the numbers as PC sales were up 63% over last year’s shopping holiday; and for 2009’s holiday season, there were more than a 50% increase in PC sales in comparison to 2008’s holiday season.

    According to Fast Company , Beilinson also boasted about the diversity of the Windows 7 operating system. The operating system is available on 1,700 PCs, but also 11,000 Windows 7-compatible devices and components. Keep in mind, however, with the World using more and more technology, there are more PCs in existence than when Vista and XP hit the market.

    Fellow geeks and enthusiasts might agree that Microsoft is loosing its edge, but one thing is certain: we are still seeing Microsoft technology in every aspect of our World: Netbooks and Tablets (also the recently revealed HP slate), Windows Mobile 6.5 in a variety of smartphones, with Microsoft even extending its technology into the car industry.
    Fast, stable, DX11, out-of-box support for most hardware. Yeah, I like it.

    i would maybe say that they are "losing" their edge, i dont know how one loosens an edge. in any case, im very pleased with this most recent release, and how do i refute criticism over my choice? "at least it isnt a mac"

    I was using Win XP for a long time,many times i gave Vista a shot but i found myself going back to XP.I am using Win 7 since november (x64) and also installed them to my P4 old pc (x86) and i am very pleased with them.It's stable,fast and good looking and had no driver problems whatsoever even with my 4 year old pc.

    For all the WinXP fanboys, Win7 is the shiz. I could NEVER go back to XP, ugh.

    As for Mac......I want to convert my wife's Dell mini netbook into a Hackintosh and put Snow Leopard on it. She won't let me
