With Windows 7, Microsoft has apparently created an operating system that serviced many users of Windows XP and Windows Vista. Already in the first days of the new operating system have been delivered ten times as many licenses as even when Windows Vista.
The saw the launch of the sale of the new operating system. In late October, it could be a worldwide market share of
work around 3 percent . The global figures are not as dominated by the many participants in the Customer Preview Program (CPP), the beta and release candidate insert has been a good year, because only with the completion (Release to Manufacturing, RTM) in late July and the official launch have attracted the numbers significantly .
Even when computers took up base Windows 7 since the completion and launch an impressive victory in November 2009 (as of 9:11:09) reached the operating system market share of impressive 33.12 percent and is Windows XP (38.32%) as threatening close, as for many years no operating system. Windows Vista is already cut off with 21.52 per cent clear.
The slope of the curves makes one thing very clear: Many users have been waiting to finally be able to change. Already in September 2009, ie before the official launch, had 18.24 percent of Windows 7 with a higher market share than Windows Vista eight months after its launch. Should this trend continue, it should replace Windows 7 safely to the end of Windows XP for over 8 years from the tip.
