Windows 7 breaks Amazon records

v3.co.uk writes:

"Windows 7 has overtaken Harry Potter novels and the Nintendo Wii to become the biggest grossing pre-order product of all time in the UK, according to e-commerce giant Amazon.

In an announcement which will be music to Microsoft's ears, Amazon.co.uk declared that the new operating system sold more pre-order copies in the first eight hours of its release than Vista did in its entire pre-order period."

The story is too old to be commented.

I got the RTM a month ago and it's a really good operating system.

running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit.

I've not run into a single issue. I've not had a single issue running any game that I own. I was left extremely happy due to the fact that no matter what I tried on xp I couldn't force off v-sync on Arma2.

I'm no longer having that issue and runnin a buttery smooth 60fps Arma2 on windows 7.

downloading my upgrade as we speak. 30$ Why not? Yay for being a student =)

If you have Vista - I recommend you upgrade. This is much better for gaming and will increase your fps by at least 10 - 20%.

i'm running vista ultimate 64bit, are you being serious though, are you sure you didnt get a new pc that had win7 on it???, because all the reviewers said that there were almost no gains in gaming, and that only the OS level use was faster. i need some serious gaming benchmarks, now that it's out it won't be long

Win7 is awesome, and it comes with DirectX 11, its good for gamimg

7 is faster than Vista, but it's not a huge difference. It's about on par with XP in game performance.

Nihilism2410d ago (Edited 2410d ago )

you've been readin to much marketing crap, windows vista will also support dx11 through an update, dx11 is backwards compatible with vista, not like how xp couldn't support dx10, win7/win vista architecture is almost identical

Of course Windows 7 broke Amazon. It'll probably break computers too.
