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.

WinXP was hardly flaky at any point in its life. Just like Win2k, and Win7 they were all pretty solid releases.

XP was a massive pain pre-SP2. Win2k was from the blissful days of pre-internet security mindset.

Windows still remains a major security whole, and one that can only be plugged properly in a virtual environment. it's just the design of the system and its APIs

Security-wise, there's nothing wrong with Windows itself since Vista; it's just unsafe practices of devs and users, to which any OS would be susceptible.
