"[q]With the Internet, Cloud and Sync anything anywhere going on, I don't see people caring too much about the OS.


Windows 7 sales figures would seem to contradict that opinion.
"
Sales ou Pre-Installed? Choice or "Take it!"? [/q]

I mean the fact that Windows7 has smashed records for being the biggest selling OS of all time.

I wont go into the in's and out's of this as I've already made my thoughts on this very clear - back when the topic was originally announced on OSNews. But I will say that this record couldn't have been achieved on pre-installs alone.
