Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

You know it's funny; even with all those "200 processes" I still have minimal latency when playing my guitar through effects processors on Windows, yet on a Mac with GarageBand or a GNU/Linux box (even with a low latency kernel) I have all kinds of issues with latency. That's a big problem even for an amateur musician like me.

And before you say "but it's your hardware!", all three OSes are on an Intel Mac mini.

GNU/Linux is a great OS for a lot of things, but please, know what the hell you're talking about before making stupid statements like that.
