Although Windows 8 is a “reimagined” version of the popular Windows 7 operating system, users of this particular software would rather switch to an Apple device than buy Microsoft’s latest product.
A survey conducted by antivirus company Avast and published by USA Today
reveals that one-third of Windows 7
, Windows Vista and Windows XP consumers in the United States would skip Windows 8 in the favor of Apple devices.
In addition, the study shows that 16 percent of the current American Windows users consider buying a new computer. Out of these, 68 percent say they might purchase a Windows 8 device
, while 30 percent are looking into Apple’s very own iPad.
Of course, Microsoft is yet to comment on this report, but the company will most likely say that Windows 8
is already showing early signs of success all over the world. Without actually providing some accurate sales numbers, that is.
