nsane.forums Posted May 28, 2013 Share Posted May 28, 2013 A new study has found that customer satisfaction for Windows 8 has dropped to Vista-era lows, scoring just 74/100, just one point above Vista. Previously, Windows 7 peaked at 78/100 in 2011.Despite sales that are on par with Windows 7, the newest version of Microsoft's OS has met with some hostile criticism. The CEOs of major companies have panned the tablet version, which has captured just 0.4% of the U.S tablet market, saying it is just not ready. And it would seem that consumers agree. A new survey, via BGR, has revealed that customers scored Windows 8 just 74 out of 100, one point ahead of Windows Vista, which is widely regarded as one of the biggest OS failures of recent times.Microsoft's satisfaction rating peaked at 78 in 2011, two years into the tenure of Windows 7. Since then, things have headed downhill, dropping to 75/100 in 2012 and then down to 74/100 in 2013. While this isn't an all-time-low for Microsoft, it is a worrying drop off from 2009, after an ascent of nearly 10% from 2008-2011. Windows 8.1 is just around the corner, however, and will come as a free upgrade. Many are speculating that Microsoft will re-introduce the Start button, which was removed when Windows 8 was released, shifting to a more touch-focused UI.View: Original Article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
