Windows 7 Sales Exceeding Vista Sales By 234pct [windowsteamblog.com]
...just today, according to the NPD groups' weekly tracking service, Windows 7 software unit sales in the U.S. increased 234% over Windows Vista's first few days of sales. "A combination of factors impacted Windows 7 PC sales at the outset, but the trajectory of overall PC sales is very strong leading into the holiday season," said Stephen Baker at NPD.

I wonder where those sales end up. Cause in my stats I've not seen a *single* visitor using it.

According to reports I've read Google Analytics is tracking Windows 7 as Windows NT.

Windows 7

Windows NT 6.1

Reading my logs themselves, I've found I had about 0.5% of my visitors today use Windows 7 (aka NT 6.1) ... I've had just a few less visitors on snow leopard.

Its bound to sell well.
Nothing bad is being said about it.
XP is getting old now.
And it works with less powerful hardware than Vista.
The main mistake they made with Vista was in the hardware requirements and the lack of drivers and the oppressive dilagoue boxes. Also it did not do much more than XP.
But now XP is long in the tooth.
I think the interesting thing will be if major corporations migrate to it !
I will be getting it soon, when I have saved up a few dollars.
Also with the downturn, people will now be wanting to buy new machines which will come with it.

were vistas hardware requirements really that bad?

no you couldn't install vista on your 8 year old computer and expect it to run as fast as your 8 year old OS on your 8 year old computer.

vista was made for more modern hardware, and if you didn't have it you shouldn't be running it.

I guess with w7 MS decided to keep those people at bay this time by making 7 more friendly to slower hardware.

MS seems to have struck gold with win7. I'm seeing many, many corporations migrating, or at least planning to migrate, from XP to 7. I say its worth it; its a great OS IMHO.
