    Judging by its initial sales, Windows 7 is certainly proving more popular than Vista.

    Microsoft sold 234 percent more boxed editions of Windows 7 than it did Vista in the initial releases of both products, according to research released Thursday by NPD Group.

    In actual dollars, Windows 7 has also been more successful than Vista. However, early discounts on pre-sales copies and a lack of a promotional boost behind Windows 7 Ultimate led to revenues only 82 percent greater than those of Vista.

    Great News, Windows 7 deserves all this.

    @OP, why don't you open a new thread. Something like 'Windows 7 Thread' or 'Windows 7 news channel' and post all the news in that thread. This will make things more tidy.

    terrific and I hope this mega-run of win7 will continue. The client company for which I am doing project have tens of thousands of PCs running winxp and they are going migrate every single one of them to win7 in next few months.

    Definitely, MS is going to get back into that 95%+ market share figure in less than a year from now and with netbook sales also increasing, there is no looking back.
