Vista Sales Exceed XP During January

"We've really been amazed at the customer launch," Gates noted, adding that demand has so far been "beyond expectations," with more than three-fourths of all license sales for more costly premium versions of Vista.

I wonder where he gets the figures from.

Comments?

I think the figures may be a bit skewed. They may have been included with machines bought in that time frame cos there was no choice from many manufactures, it was vista or burst. But how many of those machines sold with Vista are still running it??

It's not nice to ask such questions of Bill!
