Slow uptake of Windows 8 preview hints at lack of interest
Posted April 30, 2012on:
Windows users appear half as interested in trying out the new Windows 8 as they did three years ago when they jumped at the chance to test drive Windows 7, data shows.
According to Web analytics company Net Applications, only 0.11 percent of the computers that went online last week ran Windows 8. That number — representing 11 machines out of each 10,000 — was the same as Windows 8 averaged in March.
