Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Hey guy's just an observation, you have to compare apples to apples. Their sales probably did rise 11.8% compared to MS 3.9%, but you have to realize Apple normal sales last year 1,000 Mac's, this year 1,400 thus 11% increase, on the other hand MS 3,000,000 sales, this year 3,200,000 thus 3% increase. Not accurate i know, but who has the biggest market share. So does MS really care, don't think so.
