Yet, its nowhere close to Windows XP overall penetration of the global operating systems market (54%).

Windows 7, in contrast, is flourishing both at home and at work.

Windows 7 will catch up to Windows XP, but by that time Windows 8 will be almost ready.

Please tell me you are reading my blog from Windows 7, or anywhere by Windows XP… time to move on my friends.
