    Windows XP no longer the most popular Operating System

    That title now belongs to Windows 7.
    Finally! Windows XP no longer most popular desktop system - CNN.com
    To me, the shocking thing is seeing exactly how much dominance Microsoft has in the industry. According to the article, MS holds 92% of the market. I knew they had the most by a large margin, but I didn't realize it was that high.

    Re: Windows XP no longer the most popular Operating System

    I feel like schools using majority apple products would bring it a tad closer to the corporate world of MS but 42% to 2% isn't even close lol

    Not surprising at all really. Windows 7 is actually pretty damn solid.

    Pretty surprised people don't want to pay 1600 bucks for a photoshop machine.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the tile home screen goes away for desktops and laptops. There is a design very similar to W7 in it, but to have to select a button to get to it. If this were the home screen I doubt I would mind it as much.

    But, since W7 is so stable and does what I want, why change? Don't fix what's not broke.
