...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.

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.
