Windows 8 share remains low, shows modest gains each month

ZDnet-According to the figures, Windows 8 has only a 2.26 percent share of the desktop operating system market. Windows 7 has, by comparison, just shy of 44.5 percent of the market after being out for more than four years, and is slowly falling each month. (Software, Windows 8)

I brought a custom made PC from online vendor, i specifically wanted Windows 7 but the ass wipes installed Windows 8 instead...i was so pissed off with the cunts. I was using W8 whole month and i hated it with a Passion.

The worst windows i have ever used. The entire look is so ugly looking, for god sake how can anyone built such a crap OS. They are just forcing you with this new retarded look.

I had to spend more to just get windows 7. I hope M$ dies. Windows 8 suck...suck bad.

Either you're trolling, or you are just being silly.

8 runs very similar to 7 once yoou have installed a menu button, tell it to go straight to desktop and its like you are using 7, 8 looks better then 7.

I think maybe you are just trolling cause no one is dumb enough to believe the rubbish you have just written, I actually believe you don't even have windows 8 at all.

Go troll somewhere else.

You say you purchased a "custom made" pc, well if it was custom made you would of had a decision to go windows 7 or windows 8, as everything is chosen by the end user (hence you), so you would of had to of told them to put windows 8 on it for them to have installed it, as your receipt would say windows 7 or windows 8. If they have installed windows 8 and your receipt says windows 7 you as the end user would of been able to take your computer straight back and say you wanted them to put windows 7 on straight away or a refund as your system was not as the receipt had mentioned.

u dumb ass, if i did't then why would i bother troll here and waste my time.

I brought PC and i am well pissed with windows 8. U can go to traditional windows start screen but its not the same. There's no start menus and u have to put all your apps and stuff manually. It awful. I cant stand it the look.

The people that i brought the PC from, refused to give me an exchange or downgrade as it already came with W8 as standard but there was option for customers to choose windows 7 if they wish but it has to be requested which i did but apparently it did not go through and the vendor did not read the OS request properly. They charged me 75% of he original price and no refund for installing W8 as its not there policy.

I bet your Ur just puppet to a billion dollar company, licking Micro$oft behind. Stop crying like bitch. They don't need charity but they will take ur money. Go give ur money and mind to M$ biatch.
