According to those charts, Windows XP isn't the dominating force now. Vista exceeds benchmarks and is generally only a very small step down from Windows 7. Windows 7 is looking good, don't get me wrong. But for all the Vista haters that seem to have a hard-on for Windows 7 I have to have a good laugh, because now that Vista has had some SP-love it isn't much different then what they are doing with Windows 7.

Vista is good, but win7 still uses less resources and is generally far more user friendly. Alot of the stuff that people got annoyed with were removed. So its even better.

That's because they started from scratch (for some of the internals) instead of using the NT/2000 codebase they have been humping for a decade.
