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.

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


I agree.

Windows 7 is finally something that people generally agree is "better than XP" - it's probably important to note that while W7 adoption increases, those small few who have already fled to "greener pastures" (Mac, Linux, etc.) are not switching back ;)

This would indicate that Windows 7 is finally replacing XP, as intended. Microsoft didn't build Vista well enough to make much impact, but now they've finally gotten back on track with a competitive product to compete with themselves ;)
