Statistical nerd rage lol.Who really pays attention to a company stroking themselves over statistics besides stock brokers?
If someone does they need to lay off the nerd juice and get out of the house a little.
I don't think you understand how a percentage works...Windows probably outsold Mac in a few days, it's just the massively high market share that prevents Windows from being able to match Apple's user adoption %.
Apple displayed the percentage uptake, not absolute sales. Of course Windows would win based on absolute numbers -- they have a bigger marketshare.From the article said:It's easy for Apple to win this statistic as they have far fewer users in the field and when each one updates, it makes a bigger dent than if one Microsoft consumer upgrades.
I think this has more to do with corporate timelines for things like upgrading. My work only recently finished rolling out Windows 7 to everyone. You can bet they won't be moving to Windows 8 for a long time, if at all.What this adoption percentage indicates is that Mac owners want to upgrade, and Windows PC owners probably wait until they get it for free on their next computer. Yes, some will purchase the upgrade, but if Windows owners were really upgrading like Mac owners were, their data would be a lot closer to that of Apple's.
That's a good point. At the last corporate job I had we were about 2yrs 'behind' across the board for major updates (Mac or PC).I think this has more to do with corporate timelines for things like upgrading. My work only recently finished rolling out Windows 7 to everyone. You can bet they won't be moving to Windows 8 for a long time, if at all.
