Windows Well, its not official yet, but Microsoft's Windows 7 has now become the most widely used operating system. . . Windows 7 now has a strong 40.21% share of all desktop operating systems around the world whereas, the usage share of Windows XP has slipped to 38.64%. All this happened a couple of days back (in October). The rise in usage of Windows 7 and the drop in usage of Windows XP has been consistent since the time Windows 7 was first launched.

Member since:

This one might still turn out to be a decade of Win7... (at least, I wouldn't be too surprised)

But why forcing people into fast upgrades, which often bring debatable practical benefits, would be a good thing? (especially when many tools seem to morph into browser-accessed ones; or, more broadly, OS-agnostic)
