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.

Most people are not at all content with vista. The only people i have met who are content are end users who know no better.


Oh and what don't they like about it? All the issues were fixed by SP2. If people actually hated it then we would have seen more users upgrade to 7 from Vista.

I didn't like vista when it was first released but I was intellectually honest enough to admit that they fixed it with service packs. I have computers with both 7 and Vista and the differences are minimal. Interestingly Windows 7 actually boots slower than Vista.

Windows 7 has some nice features but it has been overrated it terms of what it offers over Vista.
