From the growth numbers and adoption rates, Windows 8 is actually growing much more slowly than Windows 7 today.

Can't say it's unexpected, I don't like the new interface and neither do most people I've talked to. My mum gave it a try and it was disastrous, so many of her work related programs which ran flawlessly on Windows 7 were riddled with bugs on Windows 8. If work related programs cannot migrate seamlessly, kiss corporate adoption rate goodbye as many companies still use XP.

That was my mistake, I wrote this post like an hour ago or something without reading the boards, hit preview, then was busy with something else before coming back to hit post.

I like Windows 8


I am offended by your opinion and I'm glad a product I dislike is not doing as well as a product I like.

Disclaimer: I like Windows 8/8.1 too.

this will change, not many reasons left to not make the switch.

Aside from the fact that Metro sucks and it'll tank anything it's attached to?

I'm with you with the metro hate, but at the same time, Im fine with customising it right out with a simple program. Volia, no metro, better framework. WIN!

Windows 8 is fine if you install Classic Shell, but that being said it isn't better than Windows 7. It isn't surprising it isn't doing better.
