    Windows 8 considered safer but few desire to buy a new Win


    We did our own survey of over 350,000 computer users across seven languages (English, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, and Czech) before the launch and found that most expect the new Microsoft Windows 8 operating system to be safer, but only 8% of respondents said they will buy a new computer any sooner because of it.

    Interesting breakdown.

    I found it interesting that a quarter of respondents would consider a non-PC as their next compulator device. I wonder if most of those people are running xp....

    This is true, but I would imagine that if you have an old Windows xp PC that runs like crap and have Avast installed, you might be more inclined to go with a mac over a PC because of the poor interaction you had with xp and crappy hardware; maybe effectively making you think PCs are all junk.

    Good, your research is perfect. And its true. its safe and so few will try to buy it coz they are happy with there old OS.
