Microsoft’s new Windows 7 operating system is set to continue the firm’s market dominance, according to an industry expert.
Paul Trotter, editor at PC Advisor, a monthly computer help and advice magazine, said that the recently released iteration of the software is a worthy upgrade to its predecessor, Windows Vista.
He added: “Microsoft is still top with a market share of about 80-95 per cent and even if they put out a stinker it would be here for some years yet.”
Mr Trotter also said that Microsoft is currently looking at shifting to operating system neutral applications adding that the firm was “wise to this trend going on”.
The new operating system is starting to ship with new laptops and PCs and has so far received encouraging reviews.
Experts are pointing out that new features which allow for better desktop organisation are standing out, while the software also runs quicker than its predecessor.
