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.
