Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

Vista is unfairly picked on. There were only 1 major bug (the file copying), the rest was unpowered machines being sold with it and bad drivers.

Also Windows 2000 and XP were bloody awful at release.

Windows Vista 64bit, used the same kernel as Windows Server 2008 R1 and was damn solid.
