Windows 7 overtakes Vista in StatCounter's July figures

It was really only a question of when, but Windows 7 has finally overtaken Vista in operating system market share. Windows 7 is now closing in on 20% as Vista's presence continues to slide. Vista's lack of popularity aside, Windows 7's rise is still impressive -- especially when you consider the fact that widespread enterprise adoption won't really take off until service pack one is released early next year.

So, Download Squad readers... How long do you think it'll be before Windows 7 catches XP?

Judging by the number of customers I still have requesting XP on custom builds, I'd say the old boy still has plenty of gas left in the tank.
