Windows Heck, Microsoft really weren't kidding when they said Windows 7 was the fastest-selling operating system in the world. NetApplications released its figures for January 2010, and it seems that after only three months of availability, Microsoft's latest baby has already hit the 10% market share mark.

It (rightly for the main part) received good pre-release reviews and even better reviews at release so those still holding on to Win 2K felt they finally had something worthwhile upgrading to, XP was looking and feeling very tired and Vista was a train wreck.

I would have been more surprised if it didn't reach this level of adoption this quickly.
