Windows 7 Sells 240 Million
 
 

Windows 7 has been one of Microsoft's biggest hits in history. October 22nd is its one year anniversary, and Microsoft has announced that the OS has sold over 240 million licenses. This makes it the fastest-selling operating system in history.

Windows 7 currently (as of September) ships on 93% of new consumer PCs. It has a total global market share of 17%. I think with this news we can finally begin to wipe the stain of Vista from Microsoft's corporate soul.

At least I thought that- until I booted up my old Vista notebook for a reminder. If Windows Phone 7 kicks ass, Microsoft Kinect really does prove revolutionary AND the Courier gets a launch date, we can consider forgetting about Vista. But Windows 7 was a good start.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
