Microsoft sell 150 million Windows 7 licences

Fastest-selling OS in history

Microsoft is telling the world+dog that it has flogged more than 150 million licences for Windows 7.

Writing on a Windows 7 team blog, Microsoft claims Windows 7 is the fastest-selling OS in Microsoft's history. It claims that 75 percent of enterprises are said to be actively deploying or evaluating it.

There could be a number of good reasons for this. Windows 7 is a pretty good operating system and its predecessor Vista was pants.

Vista held Microsoft back considerably with companies refusing to upgrade from Windows XP. Microsoft was not helped by the fact that Vista appeared at the same time as a recession, so companies put their sales on the backburner.
