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.

RE: From OS X -> Win7

Member since:

I've been a devout OS X user since it premiered about 9 years ago. I'm voluntarily typing this comment from 64-bit IE on Win7 on my new MacBook Pro if that tells you anything about my current opinion of OS X vs. Windows. Note, *no* form of Linux will ever appear on my MacBook Pro even in Virtual Machine form!

On IE7? why, it's a heap of junk best left to n00bs. I run Ubuntu and WinXP on Parallels VMs on my shiny new MacBook Pro and I have to say I miss many things from Ubuntu when on OS X but nothing really from WinXP.

Incidentally, also using Vista Enterprise at work. Why does your machine have to be unusable for half-an-hour and be rebooted to get critical updates. That is just pathetic in an Enterprise environment.

Win7 is ok and I'm using it as a game server for LockOn: Modern Air Combat where in some ways it does a better job than XP, but there are times when it becomes completely unresponsive. I don't dare update it as it will be out of action for an hour or two while the system is unusable while the crappy update system does its work. Again, a very poor desktop design when you try to do something a bit more than surf the web or mangle documents in office.
