Windows 8 users prefer Windows 7

Gentlemen prefer blondes


A poll of those using Windows 8 say that they would rather be using Windows 7.

According to Forumswindows8.com, a Windows 8 help and support site, asked more than 50,000 Windows 8 users what they disliked and liked about the software and found that 53 percent liked Windows 7. More than 25 per cent said that Windows 8 was their favourite version with the fast boot and shut down feature being the most popular feature.

This was closely followed by easy installation with 50 percent and Internet Explorer 10 came in third with 35 percent of the vote. Only 22 percent thought Metro UI was their most-liked feature. The biggest concern was price, with 35 percent believing that this could be improved.  While it is possible to upgrade to Windows 8 for just $39.99, but without promotional prices, the cost is around $199.99. Another  25 percent feared incompatibility.

There was some good news for Microsoft from the survey though, as the Windows 8-based Microsoft Surface was more popular than Android tablets and the iPad. Around 35 percent of respondents said the Surface would be their tablet of choice.
