I don't understand ... are you implying that the sales figures are falsified? If you calculate the days since October 22 (Windows 7 launch), convert to seconds, then divide the # of copies sold by the number of seconds, you get approximately 7.12, which rounds to 7.
no I think it is kinda ironic 7 a second for windows 7
^^^^^^ I agree! ^^^^^^^

Good for MS, I think it should be tightened up a bit, IMHO.

A friend of mine with, let's say less than average computer skills, ask me to help him with his computer problem.

He's now the proud owner of a new, legal, Win7 OS. TBH, he didn't know what was on his computer, bought from an obviously less than professional source.
