People have been pretty hard on Vista since its launch. Honestly, I don’t think that it’s done without just cause. But according to the numbers, Vista sales aren’t as bad as everyone seems to think.
According to the numbers released by Microsoft, Vista sales are doing well, with Microsoft Client Division, which handles Windows sales, showing a 67 percent increase over last year. With over 85% of those sales being Windows Vista, it sure sounds like sales are up.
What is very interesting is that 71 percent of the people that purchased Windows Vista Opted for the Premium versions over the Basic. I guess it goes to show that people really do want the extra features.
