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.

Microsoft don't let you get out much do they? Vista is so clunky and hostile it is almost universally *despised*. That's why Windows 7 is so praised in comparison.

I look at benchmarks instead of following the crowd.

The benchmarks have shown that differences in performance between Vista and 7 are in fact minimal. It many tests XP still comes out on top.

Try thinking for yourself sometime.

Benchmarks? Lol. Take the engineer blinkers off, few really care much how technologically superior Vista is to XP. No wonder you Microsoft developers build the wrong things. It is the "feel" of Vista that people hate - especially since MS and MPAA/RIAA strategic interests are put ahead of system users. Your customers aren't stupid, they know when a system is designed to control them like sheeple. That one of the reasons why people choose iPod over Wince/winmobile devices - where the control is a lot less heavy handed (but yes, it is there). Vista has as much style and panache as Steve Balmer.
