Apple: Windows 7 will help us sell more Macs

By The 'G-Man.' ·
Apple is launching a pre-emptive strike against Windows 7, claiming the new operating system "is still just windows".

Apple, claims that Vista's successor will actually increase its sales. "New Mac users continually tell us that they are tired of all the headaches with Windows, and they want the ease of use, stability and security of a Mac," claims Apple spokesman Bill Evans. "At the end of the day Windows 7 is still just Windows."

Apple claims the inconvenience of having to perform a clean install from Windows XP is one of the reasons why people might seek an alternative. "We think a lot of folks will look at that as the straw that broke the camels back," Apple's vice president of Mac OS X marketing tells "People are tired of the headaches with Windows and this is another great excuse for people to check out the Mac."

- Now let me get this straight. If I bought a mac OS I could somehow upgrade from my copy of XP, including all my settings and accounts, to OSX?

I think not!

Delete your data.
But its stable when it does so right?

I don't think I've ever had Windows do that without hardware failure being the cause.
