    Windows 7 passed the 5% market share milestone last weekend, which put it, if only temporarily, above the total market share of all versions of Apple's Mac OS X, a Web measurement firm said today.

    Last Saturday and Sunday, Windows 7 powered an estimated 5% and 5.14% of all computers that were online those days, according to Internet metrics vendor Net Applications. The two-day average of 5.07% was higher than the 5% of the market that Net Applications said Apple's operating system averaged for the week of Nov. 15-21.

    He seems to think that just because people use it a lot that somehow makes it better. If everyone switched to Mac or *gasp* Linux he'd be unable to remain the criminal he is.

    No worries then. Until they can make their OS's more friendly to the average user, we don't have to worry about that happening.

    I'm sure 7 will have a ton of bugs and crap that always go with an MS product.

    They never make something that isn't a mess.

    I invite you to go get a copy and find out for yourself.


    As to this thread, it just illustrates what kind of batshit crazy nutter koder is about other OS systems when the numbers prove how laughable her crusade is. Indeed, it's articles like this which rub her nose in her previous pompous ass input.

    That's nice. It doesn't miss you. It's glad you're gone.

    Windows 7 is by far the best OS MicroSoft has ever pushed. As I've pointed out many times, most issues with Windows are user error. As Windows is the OS of choice that comes in every new PC, every novice user has to work with it. And novice users fuck things up, to be blunt. They click on anything and everything, fuck with things they shouldn't, and don't know what to do when things go wrong. If Mac or Linux were the default OS, you'd see the same things with those systems, because they are just as easily screwed up as Windows is. But since most people switch to those softwares because they have some higher level of technological efficiency, you hear fewer reports of problems. It's not really the OS, it's the user.

    I've used Windows since I had my first PC, and I have never, not once, had a problem that I couldn't fix in a matter of seconds. My aunt and mom, however, are regularly fucking their PC's up. I promise you, if I had them switch to Ubuntu, it would not solve their problems.

    The real take-a-way from this rant: you can't fix stupid.
