Brisk Windows 7 sales show Microsoft has 'put Vista behind it,' still rules OS roost.

Microsoft weathered the storm of Windows Vista, 2007's often-abused operating system, an analyst said today after reviewing the company latest earnings.

"At this point it appears Microsoft has put Vista behind it," said Allan Krans, an analyst with Technology Business Research. "People may not have been happy with it, but there were limited choices. For consumers, Vista was the default, and for businesses, they may have delayed buying new machines, but they will still pay Microsoft at some point."

Microsoft's financial performance for its fiscal third quarter, which ended March 31, and the fueling of its earnings by Windows 7, makes his point that the company's survived the dark days of Vista, Krans continued. "The best case scenario for Microsoft was to retain its leadership position, and results indicate it's done just that," he said. "It speaks to the power of the market for Windows."

On Thursday, Microsoft reported net income of $4.01 billion, up 35% over the same period the year before, on revenue of $14.5 billion, up 6%.

Makes you wonder why Microsoft even released Vista in the first place.

Agreed.
No problems ever here with Vista Ultimate 64-bit.
Win 7 [ alias Vista Lite] was born out of Vista............

Couldn't agree more. All versions of Vista I've used (Home Pre 32-bit, Business 32-bit, Enterprise 32-bit, Ultimate 64-bit) were great.

Yeah, I had Vista and had no problems.

But Windows 7 is still way better.

I never used Vista for that long since I switched to the Windows 7 beta just about as soon as it was leaked out but from what I did use I enjoyed using it. I think it was way more stable then XP ever was and seemed to run decent on my system.

Vista really should not have gotten such a bad rap. I guess that's what can happen when you don't show off your product and lets other companies do it for you...

I agree. However, I was lucky that my first impression of Vista was good : I downloaded a copy and tried it on a computer with enough specs. I had no problems whatsover and even less when I actually decided to dump XP.

I loved XP and I love 7 but Vista was not a very good experience for me. I agree that it wasn't that bad after it was tweaked properly but an OS should work properly outta the box.

The problem that people had with vista was this...

Their systems were running Windows XP which XP came out in 2001.

Vista I think came out Jan 30 07. So there is a big 6 year span of technology...

People just did not have the specs to run Vista therefore was a horrible system for them becuase it was crappy. Yes, vista did take up alot of space, memory and did lag but if you had the specs to handle it then vista was awsome. I agree with others. Windows 7 was built from Vista.
