Windows 7: Seven vs Eight Forum usage

Seven vs Eight Forum usage


Maybe Brink can answer a question I have...
Any stats on the number of forum users (those that have a forum account) for this forum in April of 2010 to compare with the same for the Eight forum for April 2013?
As both OS's were release in October 7 in 2009 and 8 in 2012.

Anyone think this would be a good way to see real usage of Windows Eight compared to Seven?

Just a little idea...
I only have little ideas...
Big ideas are too big for me

I go to Windows 8 forums to view the threads about the Windows 8 users, who make it irrational reasons why Windows 8 is better than Windows 7

Windows 8 Pro (32-bit)

I have seven on my old Mac (Mac OS is a distant memory) and eight on my laptop. I don't really prefer one forum over the other, usually I just check my subscriptions and occasionally check the latest topics. Generally when i post a new thread, I'll post it to eightforums ONLY if I think it'll be more relevant there.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/Windows 10 64bit

Well I have an account on Eightforums but don't log in there that much even though I'm on my Windows 8 machine more than my Windows 7 machine these days.

Well it was just a little idea...

I also have an account on the Eight forums but rarely visit.
I figured that the Eight forum would've gotten a lot of people from Seven at the start so the numbers would be a bit skewed but at this point it might give a general picture of Eight vs Seven at the same point in release time...

Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!
Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this! I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine....
