Windows 7 is such a huge improvement from Vista that this doesn't surprise me. I can understand why droves of people held on to their XP machine and waited out Vista. I had Vista and it really was a bloated piece of junk. One thing that might be driving the conversion to 7 is that drivers for new hardware (especially hardware on OEM computers) aren't written for XP anymore so there's often no going back.
I've got 7 64bit with a quad-core and 8 gig of RAM. My computer absolutely smokes. Moving to 7 was great for me!
