Gates: Vista Is Fastest-Selling OS Ever

Bill Gates says that Vista has sold 40 million licenses in its first 100 days on the market, and, given the new operating system's impressive numbers, who are we to quibble?

Of course, Vista's success is all in the eye of the beholder. Some interested parties are more impressed than others.

Oh, and while we're talking about what Gates has been talking about, he confirmed this week that Longhorn Server will indeed be called Windows Server 2008, in a completely unsurprising continuation of Microsoft's mundane (but, we guess, effective) naming policy.
