Lmao sounds like the fucking retarded Mac commercials couldn't stop the juggernaut that is Windows 7 from doing amazing. According to that wikipedia article it got to 4% market share in 2 weeks. I wouldn't be surprised if that's more market share then Mac has.

On another note does anyone have stats on computer marketshare? I know PC dominates Mac but by how much.

As of January 2009, there are articles saying Mac has about a 8% market share. Which is actually down from previous years.

2009 has been a big year for Microsoft. They were constantly running ads about PCs being cheaper, Windows 7 was released, netbooks have been very successful, and the recession has hurt Mac sales. I can only assume this has all had a negative impact for Apple.

There was basically no negative review for Windows 7 so I could think that the marketshare for mac might be down even more in the upcoming months. My father is using W7 now and he totally loves it. he skipped vista though.



Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

I hope it sells a lot more.

Bullshit, Sony Vaio and Fujitsu Siemens have a lot of laptops which are over 1000$ and even over 1000€...

I think that 90% figure is from the NPD. So that's North America only. I imagine the world wide figure is lower.

Most of the people I know just think macs in general fucking suck. So I don't see why they would destroy every other company if they priced competitively.

I'm still using vista though. Might upgrade to windows 7 next year. Cant right now since I have solidworks on my laptop for my project and my teacher wont install it again because he is a dick, so don't want to take the chance in case it wont work properly without reinstalling.

But 90% looks a bit to much for me, as long as i have no proof i don't believe this.

I imagine windows 7 is MS's most popular OS system so far.  And its amazing! 

It makes Windows xp look like windows 95.



i don't know, but i'm loving windows 7 with my new comp.



Not a 360 fanboy, just a PS3 fanboy hater that likes putting them in their place ^.^
