Today during the Day 1 keynote of our annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Steve Ballmer revealed that Windows 7 has officially sold 400 million licenses to-date. Our previous statement of 7 copies of Windows 7 sold a second continues to hold true.

The article says that Internet Explorer 9 is the favorite browser today. It sure isn't with me. I had it on my desktop and my netbook. I'm back to IE 8 as I like it better. But that's only my opinion. I guess I'm with the minority.

I found IE8 really Slow and Ugly

Wow Is that more than Mac OS X?

Impressive, I wonder if that counts copies from MSDN or MSDNAA?

Also I look forward to seeing it Window 8 can match that.

From NetMarketShare(TM) for June 2011:


Operating System........ Total Market Share (top ten)
  1. Windows XP........51.13%
  2. Windows 7.........27.13%
  3. Windows Vista......9.52%
  4. Mac OS X 10.6......3.78%
  5. iPhone.............1.41%
  6. Mac OS X 10.5......1.19%
  7. Java ME............1.12%
  8. iPad...............1.03%
  9. Linux..............0.95%
  10. Android 2.2........0.44%
All Windows versions together have over 88%. Mac OS X versions have over 5%.
Share of XP and Windows 7 only - over 78%.
(I guess statistics are about chosen websites and clients.)

Funny to see how many people are holding on to Windows XP. If they would just move over to a new OS or stop using the horribleness that is IE 6 that would be great.

That said and this could be slightly off topic but Windows 7 x64 cannot hold a candle to say Ubuntu Natty Narwhal in terms of performance. I am just blown away by how fast everything is in Linux! Especially development! If I did not play games I don't think I would have had any of my computers running Windows 7 at all!
