  • So Windows 7 looks good. What does this mean to Apple? It means an end to Windows problems driving increased Mac market share. Mac market grew share 60% in 2007, hitting 14% of the market by February. Much of that growth was fueled by Apple making great products, but some of it was disillusioned Windows users switching to Mac.

    I should know; I was one of them. In February 2007, I walked into a computer store to buy a new PC. Faced with the choice between XP, which was a six-year-old operating system; or the brand-new Windows Vista, which I was already hearing bad things about, I chose "none of the above" and bought a Mac. It was a good choice, and I'm glad I made it — but if Microsoft had an up-to-date, solid operating system available then, I would have gone with that instead.

    Indeed, Microsoft has in recent months reversed its losses; its market share is growing and Apple's share slipped slightly.
