i recently for a windows 7 laptop. i use excel, and stuff and am pretty used to the system.
i chose w-7 just cause i am familiar with it.
today i went to a microsoft store cause i was hung up on a couple of set up things...
got cleared up pretty easily cause everybody probably has the same issues.
microsoft store- few weeks before christmas... probably 10 employees ( all very friendly )
1 or 2 other customers in the 20 minutes i was there.
few doors down there is an apple store. probably 100 people lined up with a policeman letting them in one at a time...
place completely packed.
i dont know if something was released today... but the success of apples marketing and consumer friendly products was , once again, dramatically demonstrated.
