    Windows XP's user share plunge not real, just a data adjustment

    The Internet metrics company that claimed Windows XP's user share plummeted by a record amount last month said Tuesday that it had struck several Chinese websites from its tallies, causing the dramatic decline.

    Net Applications argued that its estimates are now "more accurate."

    The California company's data, which is widely used by the media to track the ups and downs of browsers and operating systems, had reported October's numbers on Saturday. According to its estimates, Windows XP's user share had plunged a record 6.7 percentage points last month, while Windows 8 had soared by 4.5 points, also a record.

Windows 8 is a real problem I believe
:(I thought Windows 7 was bad, but thought they must have improved it with Windows 8. How wrong was I. Most of my progams wouldn't run. Its a disaster in my opinion. I know some businesses are now allowing Windows XP to be used in place of Windows 2000, as they now believe most of the bugs have...
