    It makes sense, when you factor in Vista sucked, and Win7 was a huge improvement. With Win8, Win7 is still fine for most and is just not worth dolling out cash for the new features. This OS they just wanted a footprint in the tablet and touch market.

    Windows 8 is on the same position Windows Vista were at it's launch time: to be an successor of an well running OS! Vista wasn't able to beat XP so neither Windows 8 will beat Windows 7! The real change will be with the next generation of Windows: Windows 9! Even not Windows Blue which will be "just" an huge Update of and for Windows 8! Look back at the time of '95, '98, '2000 and Millenium!

    Agreed.

    When you look at mobile operating systems (iOS, Android) you'll see that 3 years ago they had a market share of only 1%.

    Now those mobile operating systems have 15% of the market. And their share continues to increase. So Microsoft wants to step in. Before its too late. Unfortunately they came up with a 'one size fits all' Operating System called windows 8. Which runs fine on tablets, but makes no sense on laptops and desktop PC's.

    The 'one size fits all' approach isn't working. That is now becoming clear.

    There a lot such statistic sites out there and hardly they show the same results. Personally I don't mind about that! Statistics in may occasion were wrong in the past and will be in the future! One thing we never know, which one of them will be the one which is really true?!

    I don't have problem with Windows 8, or better let say: less problems than with Windows 7! That said, it means I really like Windows 8 and it's my main OS already for some time now. So, I also suggest to our customers to use Windows 8 instead of Windows 7 or older Windows versions.
