A Microsoft-sponsored study by research firm IDC claims Windows 7 will have a positive effect on the state of the economy:
Windows 7, released Oct. 22, is the much-ballyhooed update to the software that runs most personal computers. Microsoft hired research firm IDC Corp. of Framingham to conduct a study of the ripple effect of the Windows 7 launch. It found that American companies could hire an estimated 25,000 additional workers to cope with the Windows 7 launch, including about 2,500 new jobs in Greater Boston, through the end of 2010.
“There is a bounce effect based on the introduction of Windows 7,’’ said Amie White, vice president for global research at IDC.

Yeah, probably best to buy it with a credit card.. because spending yourself out of a rough economic situation works soo well (preferably with even more borrowed money). =P
