Coincidentally, today, February 22nd, 2010 is Windows 7ís fourth month of general availability, as the operating system hit the shelves on October 22nd, 2009. A research study from Janco Associates indicates that the latest iteration of the Windows client is simply crashing its predecessor in terms of the adoption rate. Statistics released by Janco reveal that Windows 7 uptake is over two times that of Windows Vistaís, as you can see via the graphic included in this article.

Poor Vista. It deserved a better fate.

And it's not even close to being retired yet.

Vista was a good OS, (I thought) after SP1 came out...

So is it safe to also assume that XP is dieing (Slowly?)

We can only hope xp is starting to die off. No real need to use it. Even less so if you are building a new computer so you are not limited to the typical 32bit downfalls. Assuming most people who use xp don't use the 64bit version.

Hello valtonray,

Because of mostly compatible hardware, drivers, and comfort with Seven's GUI, Vista users adoption of Seven is not supprising at all.

For the vast majority of home users running XP - they will upgrade to Seven when they replace their systems, not before. To them, it's not an "archaic" OS - it works.

The attitude of the regular posters here in adopting the new (and I include myself) is simply not shared by the majority who by and large have other priorities.

I can agree with this for the most part, but I have issue with consumers that end up buying these $2000 computers with Core i7's, 8 GB RAM, a few SSD's in RAID0, and what do they do? They put XP on them. I'm dead serious, I've seen this happen far more often than I ever expected. It's their money and they can do what they like, but I find absolutely no point in putting a near 10 year old operating system on brand new hardware.
