Microsoft: Windows 7 Is Superior to OS X, Linux, and to All Platforms

Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Windows 7 is superior to Apple's Mac OS X, the open source Linux and to all operating systems on the market, noted Kevin Turner, Microsoft Chief Operating Officer during the company's Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2010. Undoubtedly, Windows 7 has seen unprecedented success in terms of adoption and customer satisfaction. To this day, almost nine months after the operating system hit store shelves, Microsoft continues to sell some 7 copies of Windows 7 every second, having passed the 150 million sold licenses a while back.

"Speaking to Microsoft partners, Turner underlined that the success of Windows 7 can be explained not only through the quality of the OS over previous Windows releases, but also in comparison to rival products. But it's not to be expected of Apple and Linux users to take Turner's statement at heart. Both the community built around the Cupertino-based company's products, as well as the open source community are extremely loyal to their solutions of choice, and quite vocal in their opposition of all things Microsoft."
