Denver-based technology research firm Janco Partners, Inc. today released a study profiling the international browser and operating system market.

The study shows that in the less than seven months that Windows 7 has been available, it has already attained a 14.8% share of the international OS market.

"There are now more users of Windows 7 than Vista. That is a major factor in their improved record earnings. The last OS that was accepted as quickly in the market was XP," Janco CEO Victor Janulaitis said in a statement today. "Vista's market share has peaked, and is in the process of being decommissioned in most enterprises."
