Forget XP and Vista, Windows 7 Adoption through the Roof

Quote:

Consumers and business customers are moving past Windows XP and Windows Vista, with Microsoft noting that Windows 7ís adoption rate is through the roof.

The Redmond company even has the numbers to prove it, with Rich Reynolds, general manager of Windows Commercial Product Marketing at Microsoft underpinning the fact that 240 million Windows 7 licenses have already been sold to date.

But there are additional statistics coming from third-party sources, all illustrative of a consensus, the most successful operating system in history continues to sell like hot cake.

Net Applications is crediting Windows 7 with a market share of 18.33% at the end of October 2010, with XP having dropped under the 60% mark to 58.92%, and Vista down to 12.93%.

It is clear that end users are dumping XP and Vista and upgrading to Windows 7. And Microsoft expects this trend to continue in 2011, especially considering the increase in the number of PC units for next year.

Heh wow, iPhone about to pass Linux

Of course I would assume that those are end user OS usages exclusively.

Question is what the commercial users will do. They are often stuck with their applications. The compatibility mode may help, but that may be not the way the want to operate.

Yeah the landscapes for serve rPCs, POS terminals, Kiosks and embedded markets is completely different from those numbers...

It sort of looks like workplace desktops may be included above though.

I work for a Fortune 500 high tech company. I had speced out three new Dell workstations with dual Xeon hex-core CPUs - that's 24 virtual cores for performing Monte Carlo simulation runs. Though I requested Windows 7 Professional, they were delivered with XP Pro SP3 as usual. They do work very well with XP. I expect I'll have long retired before they change.

Bye.

Does Android actually count as independent OS? It looks pretty promising to me.
