XP's market share has dropped below W8.1's share.

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

I've bought 2 7 pro copies in the last month :)
Haven't activated either yet though
Activated a 7 home premium I bought some time last year just a couple weeks ago for my new build.
7 rules.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and numerous virtual machines

Yep, some of the members on Eight and Ten forums and Microsoft themselves should take notice clients want the Windows 7 Desktop Experience and not the mobile vision they (Microsoft) have. I am fairly certain there will be a bunch of users coming to this very website in August wanting their Windows 7 back. Microsoft have made that extremely difficult by hiding all the downloads of Windows 7. Of course most users won't make a backup.
Wonder what the M$ plan is if the upgrade hoses the system? A malware ridden virus laden OS won't make a good upgrading candidate.

Yea not sure but a lot of people liked messengers.... which 10 pretty much accomplishes that so as long as they use a M$ account 10 would be a step in that direction.

10162 is functioning okay for me a lot better than prior iso builds so M$ might have a iso update to push out now to the masses
Still not my cup of tea but better than anything else I've seen so far.
Besides the first 2 build which I still preferred but are long gone

So I'll stick with the insiders program as if nothing has happened except I made another M$ account to use it with and poke around every once in a while to see if any changes are made in the future that appeal to me

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600 / Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

Poor people, That's why I store my Windows 7 backup ISO's in my external HDD :)
I must include in that list:
- Windows 98 SE
- Windows ME
- Windows XP Pro SP3
- Windows Vista SP2 (both x32 and x64)
- Windows 8.1 with Update (x32 - x64)

Who knows if I would ever need any of those besides W7 :)

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

I have MSDN, the only ones I keep on hand are Windows 7 and 8.1 ISO's. I haven't worked on a Vista PC in a long while. I don't want anything to do with anything 9X vintage.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-BIT

I still have my vista disk, unfortunately its a recovery disk that came with my HP Desktop. I cancelled my reservation of Windows 10 because I lost my interest with it already.

I don't believe I've lost interest in 10 I just believe there's a lot of time left for it to mature.
I'm still interested in a real copy not an upgrade.
Prices will definitely need to be lowered though, for pro is way too high although I've seen I believe at Newegg for preorders still a bit too high :/
8.1 pro is also way too high.
Weren't too many deals this 4th of July only old used stuff
