Earlier this week, Windows 7 became the highest grossing pre-order product in Amazon UK history, topping those of J.K. Rowling's book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," according to media reports. The reason for making the correlation between a much-anticipated OS and a very popular book, presumably, was to demonstrate that even before its much-hyped Thursday launch, Windows 7 was already a success. It could turn out that the Potter factor was indeed an accurate leading indicator. However, for those who are skeptical, what is an effective gauge for measuring the success of Windows 7?
Thanks for including my comments Erika. I'd like to note that I'm speaking from experience (about enterprise demand for Windows 7).
For several years now, ProtonMedia has been selling our virtual worlds product, ProtoSphere, into a large enterprise customer base. We have often seen a desire of the CIO or CTO level buyer for our product, but large legacy installation of operating systems as old as Windows 2000 have slowed adoption. ProtoSphere runs wonderfully on Windows 7, and we see the enterprise adoption of the Windows 7 to be a real opportunity for us to increase the use of enterprise virtual environments.
Windows 7 is going to rule for the coming 4 - 5 Years. I have tried, its good. I liked its data security feature. Main thing is its new desktop interface.
