Christina Warren reports on Mashable that according to StatCounter, early adoption of Windows 7 is just under 3%. WinXP is holding at just under 50%, Vista at 37%, and Mac OSX flirting with 12%.

It appears that more users are moving from Vista to Win7 than are moving from XP, though XP did show a decline over the past two weeks. I think it highlights a huge advantage that Windows 7 had over Vista; namely it doesn’t require hardware upgrades from Vista’s requirements.
