Day-to-day living with a PC
So how productive are PC users once they actually get their PCs up and running? Well, take a look at the best-selling business titles for the PC platform. I remember Windows magazine running a list of the top 10 best-selling Windows software titles, and eight of the top ten bestsellers were either anti-virus protection programs or crash-recovery programs. That's right, the overwhelming majority of the top-selling Windows apps were utilities designed either to help PC users keep their PCs running, or to recover from their crashes when they weren't. Pretty scary stuff.
