Microsoft Microsoft presented the results for its second quarter of the 2010 fiscal year yesterday, which ended on December 29 2009. As it turns out, thanks to sales of Windows 7, Microsoft experienced a record quarter, which is especially welcome after the previous two lacklustre ones. It sold 60 million Windows 7 licenses during this record quarter.

"I never have to waste time virus scanning, defragging or re-installing from scratch to maintain stability or performance.

i have an info for you:
every fs fragmentates over time
the question is only: do you handle defragmentation as a planned task like in ntfs or as a background task like in reiser

Firstly, the word is "fragments" not "fragmentates". Yes, every filesystem fragments over time. For some it affects performance badly, for others, not enough that you have to worry about it (except if you are squeezing every last drop out of a high performance systems, or your desktop runs lousy without it).
