Windows 7 Almost Twice as Many Users as Vista

Quote:

The fastest selling operating system in history is now being used by almost twice as many customers than its predecessor.

According to statistics share by Janco, Windows 7 has grown to a massive 17.39% of the OS market. Meanwhile, the market share of Windows Vista has been falling with no signs of stopping.

The successor of Windows XP is now down to just 10.78% of the platform market, with Windows 7 being the main architect of Vista’s market share erosion.

At the same time, Janco revealed that Windows 7 has also been enjoying an acceptance Rate that is approximately twice that of Vista.

At the end of June 2010, Microsoft noted that it had sold in excess of 175 million licenses of Windows 7, and that the operating system was selling at a rate of more than 7 copies per seconds.

June was also the month in which by Microsoft’s own estimates Windows 7 surpassed Vista in terms of market share, for the first time since the platform’s GA.

Agreed. Win 7 is a good, smooth OS.
Having said that I still choose to use my Vista 64-bit Ultimate on a daily basis

Windows 7 Home Premium
 
 

I just very recently made the move from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium and I honestly love it. Got a lot to learn but jump lists alone was worth the move. I agree that Vista will continue its freefall, anyone I know that moved from Vista to Windows 7 wonder why they took so long to take the plunge.

Loving this Windows 7 forum as well, everything I want to know seems to be easy to track down here.

This may seem like a stupid question but ... why?? Every since switching to Win 7, trying to work on a Vista computer inflicts me with severe pain...

Hell, I know two people who refuses to move from Vista.
One says that she loves Vista best. The other says that he doesn't have enough money to afford it and also say that he was OK with Vista.

Strange, eh?

EDIT

Reaction to the news : I'm not surprised at all although Win Vista is pretty good OS if you have what it needs.

BCXtreme & Lebon14,

My Vista computer is less than 2 years old.
It was purchased new with top specifications needed to satisfactorily run Vista.
Has served me well, never had any problems, never let me down.
Why wouldn't I continue to use it?

Yes I do also have a new Win 7 64-bit Ultimate lappy, also with top specs.[ check them out]

At this stage I still prefer to use Vista.

I fully understand why you would still want to use that system, I just find it odd that you wouldn't upgrade said system to Win 7, but then I find it odd that so many still insist on XP, so... I guess it's just personal preference.

I think that Microsoft should take it as a wake up call that Vista was so bad! If they think that the sales figures are a good thing then they are mistaken, the reason 7 has sold so well is because Vista was so bad!

I will go one better that 7 will still be around for a long time just like XP because people will be scared of switching to 8, or will just not want too.
