In just a few weeks, 3.8 percent of all computer users in Vietnam have made the move to Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system, while Americans don’t seem so interested in the new software.

According to data released by PC optimization company Soluto, only 1.3 percent of the consumers living in the United States are currently running Windows 8.

Figures are, however, more encouraging in Europe, as 3.2 percent of the Hungarian users have already deployed the new OS.

Romanians are also pretty satisfied with Windows 8, so 2.5 of the local computer users now rely on this Windows version.

Figures provided by Net Applications earlier this week revealed that Windows 7 is still the most popular operating system in the world with a market share of 44.69 percent in October, while Windows XP comes second with 40.66 percent.
