Vista: Over 60 Million Served?
Microsoft is crowing about Vista sales, and for any other vendor, 60
would be truly huge. But this is Microsoft we're talking about,
and it's held to a higher standard.
With an installed base of Windows rounding about a billion, 60 mil is a drop
in the PC bucket. And the 60 million figure itself is taking some heat, with
critics pointing out that not all of these licenses are actually in use.
Still, I wouldn't mind being in Microsoft's shoes. Thick client PCs are still
the main way we compute, and nothing -- not Linux nor the Mac nor Google --
is currently posing a serious threat.
