Gartner study has good news for Microsoft. Windows 7 is doing really well and more than 42 percent of PCs worldwide will run Win 7 by the end of 2011. Gartner reports that nearly 635 million new PCs are expected to ship with the OS by the end of the year.

Great news ! But if it would be an absolute majority (more than 50%) it would be even better .

I live my OS . It's intelligent ... and smart . And it is my pleasure that a huge proportion of the population thinks in my line

Hopefully your desire will not be fulfilled. Competition brings innovation, smaller players with fewer overheads often show the way.

I very much doubt it. On the desktop MS is, overwhelmingly, the boss.
But Apple has created it's own market for it's boutique products.
People don't want a tablet device, they want an iPad. They don't want a smart phone, they want an iPhone etc.
That's why they have more ready money than America!
Can't see them going away anytime soon.

I regret to inform you that I'm not one that shares your opinion. While it does take intelligence to maintain and operate a computer and it's OS, I find absolutely no intelligence in it. Storage, collation and display of data doesn't equal intelligence.

@seeker:

Maybe he actually is thinking about the intelligence "behind" Win OS, another words the extension of the designers, and programmers who created them.

Even software has occasional flaws as do we humans so it shows a form of character and dare I say, "soul" in the product. Since there are times when the processes do not do what we expect them to do, and code does contain errors, just like the human thought process does.

Apple's OS X seems to have a stunted soul IMO.

On second thought, he probably is using "intelligent" as an adjective, to describe the OS, only crediting the programmers indirectly. I would be quicker to agree with you, if you used the word "spirit", rather than "soul", because that is where our flaws reside, but in any case, flaws doesn't preclude intelligence, because modern intelligence is full of flaws. Too bad that OSs don't have wisdom, because that is what makes flaws apparent, and hopefully avoided.
