Microsoft Microsoft presented the results for its second quarter of the 2010 fiscal year yesterday, which ended on December 29 2009. As it turns out, thanks to sales of Windows 7, Microsoft experienced a record quarter, which is especially welcome after the previous two lacklustre ones. It sold 60 million Windows 7 licenses during this record quarter.

2) Discontent people running Vista wanting to get off ASAP.

There hasn't been a mass exodus of Vista users to Windows 7. Most Vista users are satisfied with their OS.


Fast forward a number of years and now that ecosystem of programs are developed and work with the additional security layers in place. The better user experience is *because* of the pain the Vista caused.

The major security layers were added in Vista while 7 has minor security improvements. I have computers running both Vista and 7 and I wonder if most Vista bashers have even used it. The major difference in quality was from Vista SP0 and Vista SP2, not Vista SP2 and Windows 7. Too bad most tech press writers enjoy bashing Microsoft more than reading boring old benchmarks.
