Windows 7 Beta Usage Jumps



The Windows 7 beta releases in January have led to a spike in usage share.  Similar to Windows Vista, Windows 7 usage share is showing a pattern of being much higher on weekends than on weekdays.  In contrast, Windows XP has an inverse trend line.  XP's share is higher on weekdays due to Microsoft's relatively high business vs. residential share of Windows XP.

This is an indication of strong interest in Windows 7, since it does not come pre-installed on a computer like Vista.  Beta users are taking the time and effort to install it on their home computers, since corporations generally prohibit beta operating systems to be used in production environments.
