Windows 8’s adoption rate remains slow, even though Microsoft is getting ready to launch the 8.1 OS update supposed to fix so many things with the product.
But as far as Toshiba and its business
sales are concerned, 99 percent of its sales are still going to Windows 7
, with only a few people actually choosing Windows 8.
Toshiba's B2B product marketing manager Cindy Zwerling told ZDNet
in an interview that Windows 8 “remains some distant plan in the future,” explaining that Windows 8.1 indeed has some potential to boost sales of Microsoft’s modern platform.
“Windows 7 is clearly the enterprise operating system at this time,” she said. “But there are pockets of the corporate population that use [detachable] tablets, and might be running Windows 8. But for your standard clamshell notebook? It's Windows 7. From a business perspective, I would say 99 percent of our sales are Windows 7.”
