    Vista is just flying of the shelf....

    Though Microsoft says Vista's sales are strong, numbers from some analysts
    tell a different story.

    About 40 million copies of Vista sold within its first 100 days, versus 20
    million for Windows XP, Kutz said. But those numbers are skewed by the much
    greater number of PCs on the market in 2006 than in 2001.

    According to NPD, for the first seven months of 2007, total dollar volume
    from sales of the boxed version of Vista was 41.5 percent below that of
    Windows XP during its first seven months. The number of copies of Vista sold
    in that same period was 59.7 percent below sales of XP, said NPD.
