Today we reported our third quarter earnings for the period ending March 31st, 2010 with a record $14.5 billion in revenue. You can read our earnings results here. Windows 7 continues to be a growth driver for Microsoft and people continue to be excited about Windows 7. How excited?  Exactly 6 months after the launch on October 22, 2009, we’ve sold well over 100 million licenses of Windows 7. To put that in context, more than 10% of all PCs worldwide are already running Windows 7 today. That’s amazing!

I don't believe that number. Licenses are sold for x number of users, particularly in government sales, but then x-2 or x-5 or even x-10 licenses actually end up being used. I get around to alot of area businesses in my own profession, and I don't see a whole heckuva lot of 7 rigs. Less than ten percent of the computers I've seen in Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia run 7, and I see lots of computers, lots of networks, and lots of setups. Heck, all the colleges in my area are still pimpin' out XP.

I can't comment on the numbers MS has reported on Seven. However based on the members and guests on Seven Forums I would say it is coming on strong. Fabe

Thanks. Just trying to keep up on things. Mom has Vista so I always need to help her, so might as well make sure I know as much as I can. Fabe

Acutally . . . Windows 2000 has got to be the best, I miss it even today - it was the most stable OS I ever used. Everything ran perfectly and fast . . . if it weren't for newer software that I needed to use that required XP I would have never upgraded . . . but, I'm liking Vista a whole lot and see no reason to move to Win7 unless I buy a new PC.

I like valid reasons:)

I love my Vista SP2 it runs faster than previously installed Windows 7.

One more question How many people run Genuine Windows 7:D

I'm completely satisfied with Vista SP2. I was able to play around with 7 for a while. I do not see much if any advantage for me switching to 7.

I'd buy and use 7 if I 1) wasn't color-blind and 2) didn't prefer Windows Classic, the old-school Win3.1 desktop scheme.

Actually, I could use their help. I'm trying to find a system color palette that's all black and white, monochrome.
