Microsoft says that Windows 8 is a very appealing product, despite the fact that it’s still in beta stage.
In fact, it’s even more popular than its predecessor, as Windows 8
has many more early adopters as compared to the previous iteration of the OS.
Microsoft hinted in a blog post that the Consumer Preview version of Windows 8 was indeed downloaded by a significant number of users.
However, the company refused to provide accurate figures on the number of downloads.
It did however mention that “Windows 8 has been downloaded
and used by more people than Windows 7 during the same period.”
Surprisingly, according to stats released by Net Applications
, Windows 8 has five times less early adopters than Windows 7, with the upcoming OS holding a 0.33 percent market share in September.
