Snow Leopard sold nearly twice as many copies as Tiger and Leopard in first few weeks
Apple is selling its latest Mac OS Snow Leopard at a very brisk pace according to reports from research firm NPD. NPD reports that the sales of Snow Leopard have far exceeded the sales of the previous operating systems Leopard and Tiger.
According to numbers gathered by NPD, Apple has
sold nearly twice as many
copies of Snow Leopard as it did Leopard and almost four times as many copies compared to Tiger. Another important metric for Apple is the fact that while sales of Snow Leopard have decreased since the first week the OS was offered, the decrease hadn't been nearly as significant as the past two OS updates over the same period.
NPD reports that
has seen sales decrease about 25% after its first week of release. Leopard and Tiger sales decreased by about 60% after the first week of availability in comparison. Stephen Baker from NPD said, "Even though some considered Snow Leopard to be less feature-focused than the releases of Leopard or Tiger, the ease of upgrading to Snow Leopard and the affordable pricing made it a win-win for Apple computer owners — thus helping to push sales to record numbers."

Students: Get 8 Windows 7 Professional Keys for $19

They're giving windows 7 away. Crazy stuff isn't it?

I'm a student at the University of Waterloo and I get nigh-unlimited free Windows 7 licenses provided that there is a good reason for me to use them. E.g. If I have a netbook and a desktop PC then I'm entitled to two. If I have a laptop and my relative has a desktop, I'm only entitled to one.
They don't really check. My experience has been tell them how many licenses you need and they increase the number of machines your keys work on accordingly.
