Over on Paul Thurrott's Supersite Blog on Paul Thurrott's Supersite For Windows, I wrote:
"...there are one billion people using Windows right now, compared to about 25 million on Mac OS X. Do the math."So I took my own challenge and did the math.
1,000,000,000 Windows users. 88 million copies of Vista shipped (not actually in use, but never mind that). That amounts to 8.8% of Windows users actually using Vista, which first shipped nearly a year ago.
25,000,000 Mac users (again, my numbers). 2 Million copies of Leopard sold in the first 48 hours. That amounts to 8% of Mac users using the newest OS in less than a week.
This can't mean Leopard is more successful than Vista, can it?
No way. That's just not obvious.
