Windows 7: Windows 7 Soon To Become The Most Common OS (Finally)

It was just a matter of time before Windows 7 overcame XP or Vista. Vista was a failure. XP is a great OS, but computers do not last forever and/or people upgrade to remain technologically current. In purchasing a new desktop/laptop all one can find is Windows 7 (64bit) (for the most part unless a person wants a MAC or Linux.)

Windows 7 is good, Vista is good, XP is good,...

When there time is up, when a newer one arrives, I will move on.

Some people just like to try new things and some like to stay with what they have.

It's all good.

Yep, I've always thought that 7 will become the Xp of this decade. Just watch, by Windows 9 or 10, Microsoft might be in a pickle of getting rid of 7!

That's what I said too, although my 6 year old XP computer was a little slow. Now that I bought a new computer with WIN7 64x, I wish I had done it sooner. 7 is really nice.

I don't know about you guys but I don't know what I would do without the desktop snap-to feature. I use it constantly and it makes organizing and multitasking incredibly easy.

Seven is as rock solid as they come. It will take quite an act for me to consider upgrading from it. As someone previously said, only if I buy a new machine. All my machines are < 2 years old so I don't expect that to happen for quite some time.

This. It's one of those little things that makes you just think "Why on earth didn't anyone think of this sooner?"

There was a saying around about 2009 when 7 was just becoming available for beta/RTM. "It just works" That is still true today. I think honestly, I may become that thing I so hate with the XP crowd... the person whom you have to pry it from their cold dead fingers.
