Windows 8 – more like Windows Vista than Windows 7

Thu, Dec 6, 2012


Computerworld reports:

After a month on the market, Windows 8’s usage uptake resembles 2007’s Vista — ultimately a poor performer for Microsoft — rather than the eventually successful Windows 7, a Web measurement company said Saturday.

According to Net Applications, 1.2% of all Windows PCs ran Windows 8 during November, more than double its share the month before..

While Windows 8 uptake rate edged Vista’s first full month — that OS ended February 2007 with a 1% share of all Windows systems — the new edition actually jumped less than the problem- and perception-plagued Vista. From January to February 2007, Vista increased its share more than five times, compared to the doubling of Windows 8.
