PC OPERATING SYSTEM FLOGGER Microsoft's Windows 7 still holds more market share than Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 combined.
Even more disturbing, for Microsoft, is that Windows 7 has actually gained more market share than the newer versions of Windows.

"with Windows 8 reaching a satanic 6.66 percent."

Whats even funnier is according to their chart XP still beats Vista.

Looks like the "big mover" was OS X 10.9 (0.84% to 2.42%).

Maybe we'll get a Windows 7 SP2 after all. The big corporations are not going to move to 8 - their IT staff will see to that. They want to stay out of trouble - and cost to retrain thousands of users.

I know of few large businesses in this area that are just now beginning to move off XP to Windows 7. A birdy told me that one would move to Unix before they would go to Windows 8.

Yeah, In Germany, many public organizations are moving to Linux. And the EU just passed a directive for their organizations to go Open Source - although that may not be directly linked to the Windows 8 debacle.

On the job I get allot of calls, end users & IT moving from xp platforms to 7, just now as well. One out of maybe 20 callers have 8.

Sometimes I think backwards as many know. So here goes.
We have a read why businesses and home owners don't want Windows 8.(?)

I'm trying to think of some reasons why business and other users would want to go to Windows 8(?).
I'm thinking that Microsoft didn't take into consideration the big WHY.
It can't be the finger print screen method of trying to get work done on a computer.
You would think that somewhere along the line somebody in Microsoft would of asked in a board meeting; WHY will the market place want to buy such a product like Windows 8 and install it on computers.
