Windows Nearly 40 million copies of Windows Vista have been sold in the first 100 days following its release, more than twice the sales of Windows XP over the same time period, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates said in his opening keynote here at the 15th annual WinHEC. "We have been amazed by the response to Vista and what has happened in the last 100 days. So, in the first five weeks of shipping Vista, we have matched the installed base of any other operating system provider," Gates told several hundred attendees in an address entitled 'Platform Innovations for Today and Tomorrow'. In addition, Microsoft said that the follow-on to its Windows Server 2008 operating system will be an interim release due to arrive in 2009.

not sure, maybe they are breaking records. However, I haven't seen many Vista's around. Just heard of one person having it at home. And thinking of moving it, or at least, dual booting with XP. It is a girl, so she kind of likes new eye candy and all, but has an older machine, so hates the speed.
No doubt there will be a lot of Vistas around, people buy their comp with OS preinstaled. However, here (european country) there are some higher than expected and usual movements to Linux desktop in some big companies. Which is also nice. I don't want MS to dissapear, I want more balance on the market.
