    Windows Users Jumping To Apple: Survey


    Avast survey says Windows users switching to Apple. Maybe it's because Apple allows its desktop and tablet customers to use a UI designed for the device. That's brilliant. Maybe MS can copy that.

    • I jumped ship after I saw how much Vista sucked. I switched to Mac and Linux. I don't regret it one bit! The old Mac died, so now I just use Linux. Linux lets me customize my Desktop any way I damn well please. No stinking Metro Tiles either. I tried the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. My first impression was #$%$ ? ? ?' There's no way diehard XP users will switch to Windows 8. They might switch to a Mac or iPad though. Windows 7 users seem happy, so I don't see them switching to Windows 8 either. According to W3 Schools, about 16% of users are NOT using Windows as of Oct 2012. This is more than double the 7% non-Windows users in Jan 2007, when Vista was released. This means 9% of users jumped ship since the Windows Vista Fiasco. Windows 8 is starting to look like a Fiasco too.

      LOL! Ironic isn't it. MS copies or steals everything they produce for decades to succeed then falls on its face tying to build sell something marginally original but entirely inappropriate for their bread and butter market.

      Who'd a thunk it...? Everyone but their shills...
