Right.. because everyone searches for Android... I have never once done a search for android.. and I own an Android Device. I've searched Win8 more than Android.. and I have 0 intention of using 8... so a few searches for something means nothing.. it's how well it sells and if it can take out the competition (which I can't see happening).


This isn't search comparison, this is Operating System comparison as tracked by statcounter tracked websites.

Okay fair enough. But still isn't it kind of strange to compare an OS on multiple platforms (Desktop, Netbooks, Tablets, Mobile, etc) with an OS On just Tablets and Mobile? I mean theres 2 other markets completely, running Windows 8 that Android doesn't run on :/

The point of the graph is to show that after two weeks Windows 8 already has a larger presence than a platform that supposedly is running on 600+ million devices worldwide.

most android phones sold are basically dumbphones that are given away for free that cant run anything worthwhile,and these studies prove it. windows 8 is about to over take ios in web presence in a month,and we all know these ios devices are made to browse the web. All this and windows 8 hasn't been released for 2 weeks yet. What does that tell you?

The number of Windows 7 computers (some of them tablets, I might add) on the web and off it at the moment beats all other systems combined. What does that tell you, mouthpiece?

bad comparison android isn't a desktop OS and how would you differentiate windows 8 desktop from windows 8 tablets if you just call it "windows 8"

when was android released? when was ios released? when was windows 7 released?

all years ago

when was windows 8 released? less than 2 weeks ago.

when did windows 8 destroy android in web presence? in 3 days

when will windows 8 destroy ios web presence? in 30 days

when will windows 8 destroy windows 7 in web presence? who knows but windows 8 is doing better at launch than windows 7 did,and windows 7 sold over 700 million copies in 2 years.

what did some delusional folks say before windows 8 was released? that it would be a massive failure,and that nobody would want anything to do with it,and that its going to be the laughing stock of the tech industry. that it was a mobile OS and useless on the desktop. that its made only for touch. that the colors seem childish.

what did these same people say when they started knowing the windows 8 is running a train on everything else? oh its all of a sudden a desktop OS and you cant compare it to mobile. LOL

again, enjoy windows 8 :)

I agree with vcfan, a few weeks ago a lot of the detractors where still saying Win8 is a mobile OS, should not be on desktops, blablabla

now when they make a comparison to a mobile OS, it's not fair because Win8 is after all a desktop OS

Make up your minds people, and just admit you were wrong, Win8 will is great and will be a succes

This is the kind of people that makes me think world needs another holocaust or two. Same bullsh*t in every thread and feeling like some big goddamn heroes, too. Who the f* said anything about not enjoying Windows 8 so as to warrant that kind of dumb comments!

It's patently obvious that it is replacing Windows 7, because for the moment the only way Windows 8 can be sold is by being installed on desktop computers (in the buzzworded post-PC era, hurr durr). Because there are no mobile Windows 8 devices at the moment at all. Windows RT, on the other hand, is solely for mobile devices and will not see being installed on desktop computers ever.

Windows 8 is desktop OS. Always has been, always will be. What folks were telling to your thick heads is that it's made to look like mobile OS, to reduce the interface gap between form factors, to unify experience. What effect it has had - to each their own. It's exactly why I don't read these threads - because nobody does, simply feeling obligated to either agree with one side or the other depending on the overall "like" or "don't".

Now the statistic in question does not differentiate between Windows 8 and Windows RT (does it even include RT at all?). They are made to look the same, but they are not the same thing, and that's what this thread was meant to be about before you all took over with senseless yammering about how Windows 8 is the Golden Obama Jesus The Third The Mighty.

WTF???
there aren't any windows 8 mobile devices? Samsung ativ smart pc, ativ smartpc pro, asus vivotab, vivotab smart, taichi, transformer book, all the acer iconia tablets. these are not RT but full blow windows 8 on intel processors. And windows 8 has everything Windows RT has,so IT IS running on desktop computers as well. The only difference is that RT doesn't run x86 apps because these devices use ARM cpus.

its a desktop OS, yet its being sold on tablets? With a touch friendly UI,and touch friendly games and apps. It works great on desktops and tablets,and is built for BOTH. You cant be serious in saying that its made to look like a mobile OS,you just cant.

Now the statistic in question does not differentiate between Windows 8 and Windows RT (does it even include RT at all?).

Why should it be differentiated? You can't differentiate it anyways. Windows 8 has everything Windows RT has, so if you're using x86 windows 8 on a Samsung tablet without ever using the desktop, what makes you different than someone using an RT tablet? They are basically functioning the exact same way.

And it is not only made to look the same. Its not like its a CE kernel with the modern UI slapped on top. They share the same kernel,the same software framework and stack like WinRT, and the most of the apps in the windows store run on RT and 8.



By the way, you guys were so convinced that when people see the modern UI, they will stick to windows 7. Nobody would want it, they said. Now all of a sudden when windows 8 is selling massively you want to differentiate between RT and 8 because you cant accept the fact that people are liking it and you were wrong. The people behind the MetroTwit app in the windows store recently said they just passed their 100,000th download. These were all WindowsRT device downloads right? right?????

I think its time for you and others to accept the facts and stop with these excuses and nonsense.

It appears to me that you're looking at deliberately skewed statistics and assuming that they mean more than they do. Look at the same figures for markets where they actually compete like tablets and I wager the stats would look a bit different.

That comparing stats of desktop OS vs mobile OS is bag-of-hammers dumb sensationalist bullshyte, at least well until Surface Pro and Pro tablets appear en masse. Windows RT, on the other hand...

Actually, no it isn't. Android isn't designed to be used on desktops, full stop. What a product is marketed for is very important, and if you compared like for like and only looked at tablets I'd wager the figures would be different. The argument that you're making would be something akin to telling a person looking for a corporate jet for their small business that they'd be better off with a Boeing 737 because it sells in such big numbers.

Tell that to Android/Apple hipsters who have been comparing phone+tablet sales trends(increasing) to PC sales trends(flat, PC is dead etc.) and then include everyone on the post-PC bandwagon.
I guess it's ok to compare Android tablets (if people actually buy them) to PCs when the stats are in favor, right?

wait... WHAT??? people were bitching that windows 8 is a tablet and mobile only OS,and nobody is going to use it on the desktop.

then these stats come out and now all of a sudden, you cant compare apples to oranges because windows 8 is a desktop OS?

that is the funniest thing I've heard.

guess what? windows 8 is a damn success and all you haters have no more excuses. the market is speaking and you guys are acting like babies.


according to these stats, in less than a month, windows 8 should over take ios web presence as well.

surprise, windows 8 has arrived,and all other platforms are beginning to become irrelevant. enjoy

this!

bad comparison android isn't a desktop OS and how would you differentiate windows 8 desktop from windows 8 tablets if you just call it "windows 8"

How do differentiate between Android smartphones and Android cheapo dumbphones that can barely make phone calls when Google counts everything under umbrella "ONE GAZILLION ACTIVATIONS A DAY"?
I am in India right now and a good majority of phones soid here are AndroidSamsung that stil run Android 2.3 and cost between INR 4000-11,000 (~$90-$200) - unlocked, no concept of contract here.
