Windows 7 on par with Windows XP

Windows 7 has proven itself to be a very popular operating system since its release in 2009. So popular in fact that pre-orders of Windows 7 acheived greater sales in just 8 hours compared to sales of Vista in the first 17 weeks of its release. This just goes to prove how unpopular Windows Vista is.

Although Windows 7 replaced Windows Vista, which seemed to be plagued with issues and never lived up to its hype, the much older Windows XP continues to remain popular with end users and businesses.

StatCounter global stats show that online impressions for Windows 7 systems surpassed those of Windows XP in the last Year and now Windows 7 has over 40 per cent (42.48 per cent) of the worldwide operating system market, compared to Windows XP on 37.08 per cent.

Remember if you are planning to upgrade to either Windows 7 or Windows 8 make sure you upgrade your computer’s RAM to handle the new operating system. Need more Memory?

What is ECC Memory

ECC stands for Error Correction Code. ECC memory comes in three different varieties. There is ECC-Unbuffered, ECC-Registered and ECC-Fully Buffered. ECC memory is available in all memory types.

ECC Memory is used in high-end workstations, and Servers. This is because the ECC function is able to detect and clear errors with no input from a user. This is essential because Servers do not have users operating the machines all the time, so if an error occurred the server could crash. This would then cause problems for users that relied on the information stored on the machine, as well as servers that host websites, as websites would go down too. Continue reading
