I still have to make the jump. I might keep one XP machine (an Athlon XP 2700+ running on the legendary A7N8X-E Deluxe) but my 'main' machine and the next one (which should be in before year's end) should get the 7 treatment. So count 2 more copies soon.

I could see the future back in October, when I received and hosted Windows 7 houseparty.

Thanks MaximumPC for notifying me. And many thanks to Houseparty and Microsoft!

Not doubting the fact, but since there are a lot of computers in the world now then when XP came out, there are a lot more computers to upgrade to Win 7 and more being sold

There may be more computers, but not all can run Win7. A lot of the computers out there are more than 3+ years old or older and will not be able to run Win7 effectively. So the fact that Win7 has sold so many copies is indeed a big deal and a great reason for people to upgrade their out dated computers. The anticipation of Win7 was the driving force behind building my last computer. The best thin Microsoft did was realizing that they made a mistake with Vista; going back to the drawing board and getting it right.

I agree that there are more PC's now as opposed to when XP was released, but Win 7 is being picked up pretty darn fast.
