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.

Who are those Linux users you talk about? As a Linux user myself, I'm fairly impressed with Win7. Fanboys of all colours will of course slander the competion, which sort of answers my question as to why you choose to slander Linux users.

Any Linux user who fits the description... Obviously my comments wouldn't apply to level headed and reasonable Linux users.

Also, I haven't said anything slanderous. I simply posted a few opinions based on observation.

Lastly, you implying I am some sort of Windows "fanboy" is a bit silly considering I use Linux half the time, by choice. And by the way, Linux isn't remotely close to being Windows competition, at least in the desktop market.
