Windows Well, its not official yet, but Microsoft's Windows 7 has now become the most widely used operating system. . . Windows 7 now has a strong 40.21% share of all desktop operating systems around the world whereas, the usage share of Windows XP has slipped to 38.64%. All this happened a couple of days back (in October). The rise in usage of Windows 7 and the drop in usage of Windows XP has been consistent since the time Windows 7 was first launched.

I think IT departments got spoiled rotten by a decade of XP and IE6 - they could go as slowly as they wanted without worrying about compatibility with the latest and greatest software, or security patches. I'm personally glad that Windows is back to a fast release schedule, since that will force IT to work faster or get left behind.
