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.

Yeah, who wants a stable and reliable work computer anyway ?
We need 3D desktops running circles around us, we need skins everywhere so that no computer looks like the other, we need overblown apps with tons of plugins and daily updates, with new behaviour and new features and new bugs every next day.

One of Windows great strengths is the deployment and management tools available to the system admninistrator.
