Default Vista Share Up

As of August, Vista is now the second most used OS behind XP. Slowly Vista is going to take over, I can see it becoming even more popular than XP. It's even beating the Mac OSs combined...

That is still only a little share compared to XP , I think the one thing putting most people off is the resource intensiveness of it
Also it would be interesting to see how many people that was carried out on and their uses of their computer s, eg gamers or general office people

Yeah, this survey is just taken from the internet. So that's the % of people that they recorded as being on the internet with those OSs.

The thing is, all new PCs come with Vista by default. So as people buy new PCs, Vista's share is going to slowly take over XP's.

Yeah, I said by default, and pretty much all new PCs come with Vista by default. If you really want, you can order XP, but 95% of users will just leave it with Vista.

I've bascially fully migrated to Vista, and I love it. I like it better than XP.

It's not Xbitlabs. That's just an article about it by them. The data is collected by a company called Net Applications.
