Market analysis: Windows 8 is coming, so people are stocking up win Windows 7 while they still can. Nothing motivates sales like fear!

They are having better sales now because people got wind that Win8 is not worth it and opted to get a Win7 machine before it's to late.

There never has been a decade that Microsoft would survive. In the 1980's Apple was going to wipe softie out. In the 1990's the internet and Netscape made windows irrelevant. In the 2000's ClicktoseeMore made sure that everyone knew that Windows is insecure and insecurable. The Xbox was the platform of choice for Linux. Sun Office was free, so the MS Office Franchise is dead. Recently, back to Apple is going to wipe them out. Get over it: MSFT will live forever.
Clicky, is that you?

"Clicky, is that you?" - No, Sorry.

Didn't say that it was the end of MS, just said that the spike in sales could be from people that don't want to get stuck with Win8. Same thing happened to XP sales just before Vista shipped.

Sorry, guess I was a little crabby. Just sore I never bought their stock during one of the periods of doom. Your comment makes sense.
