The rise in popularity of Windows 8 is still low


Twenty-sixth October 2012, Microsoft released perhaps the most controversial operating system – Windows 8. After 7 months, the OS is still trying to win popularity among the most common version of Windows – Windows 7 , which is currently set at 44.85 percent of all computers in the world.

Just accept as fact – Windows 8 will not become a revolutionary system that everyone was waiting for. With all of the major new features (modern touch user interface) is based on touch technology (which by the way is also a need to update your system if you want to fully enjoy them), most users of Windows 7, the new Windows 8 was rather unfortunate update, that people have decided to just skip. Yes, the new operating system boots faster and better controlled power, but Microsoft has attempted upon the holy of holies – the “Start” button, which mercilessly (and as shown forumnye groans), and carelessly went on “shopping cart”.


Recent analyst reports Net Applications show that in May 2013 Windows (or rather several of its versions, led by Windows 7) still rules the market and it is competing in this rather herself. Noticeable decline in the market share of these OS versions like Windows Vista and XP. And if Vista’s market share, and so was not great, then from Windows XP users are still very reluctant to come off. This is despite the tough advertising policy Microsoft, which aims to increase the growth of sales of Windows 8. But during this time, the figure has just pathetic 0.43 percent. On the other hand the growth of the share of Windows 7 in recent years can not be called significant – it is 0.13 percent.

Some analysts believe that the situation with Windows 8 will be able to establish a promising update Windows 8.1 . Formerly known as the «Blue», update promises to fix a variety of problems reported by users, and even bring back the “Start” to its rightful place (it will open «Start screen»).

If Microsoft did everything correctly, Windows 8.1 may become the lifeline that will boost sales of the operating system and otest market share from Windows 7. At least this is what the company and hopes.
