It’s been a LONG time since I’ve used Windows 7. I mean, there are a couple of improvements that were released in Windows 8, and I’m just amazed that anyone would still use Windows 7.

I wonder what their database infrastructure looks like now.. I’ll bet that they get a billion rows every 10 minutes now.
I had read an article a couple of years back about how Microsoft Corporate Security was using Parallel Data Warehouse to deal with the volume.
I am so glad that SQL Server has gained so much market share over the years.
