Windows XP has won both hearts and minds in the channel, with the enterprise stalwart staying on top with a preferred votes rate of 80 per cent despite tough competition from the rest of the Windows OS range.
In a result that will be disappointingly familiar to Microsoft, Windows Vista came off second best (71 per cent) while its predecessor, Windows 2000, was third (60 per cent).
Windows 98 (48 per cent) narrowly edged out Windows 95 (45 per cent) to score fourth and fifth place, respectively.
