We'll see, heh heh.
thats because a lot of businesses are cheap-asses
e/g H&R Block (they do ppls taxes) still use old dinosaur pcs w/ windows 2000

XP will be aound for a while, though it already lost live support from M$ (dont quote me, but i read that on one of their partner sites)

And then what about all the "Pirate" copies of the various released of Windows.

Before Windows XP you could provided you had the serial number install Windows on as many computers as you liked (not legally of course) so how can MS possibly know the number of say Windows 2000 users at the moment.


Honestly these stats mean absolutely NOTHING at all.

What they CAN know at any one time is the number of Windows licenses that are currently ACTIVE on their licensing servers -- but even this doesn't tell correctly the number of users

For example I have 2 legally paid for VISTA Ultimate licenses but I haven't currently got them installed on any machine at the moment.

I'd really FIRE any sales director basing management plans on these sorts of stats.

Cheers

may be this is the statics of legal copies of windows(xp.vista ,2000) compared with no of official download of Win 7 rc from M$ statics can never be accurate its just approximation to give better idea!!!

We have seen some stats from MSFT in the Windows 7 Engineering blog about usage during the beta. MSFT does get realtime telemetry data which tells them exactly how many unique copies of each of their OS's are running. If they release those numbers (and they won't, at least not a comparision to the other OS's) it would be a moving target anyway. The data from the stated service by the OP should be taken with a big lump of salt IMHO. But it is interesting none the less.
