Windows 8 crashes 55% less than Windows 7

Windows 8 logoWindows 8 is said to be a reinvented version of Windows 7 and, according to PC optimization software Soluto, it really is. But not as much as some consumers would hope it to be.

A report released by Soluto claims that Windows 8 crashes 55 percent less than Windows 7 which, in some cases, is really good news. The bad part of this story however is that Windows 8 continues to crash every once in a while due to a number of factors.

Consumers included in the study find Windows 8 84 percent less frustrating than Windows 7, despite the numerous GUI changes introduced in Microsoft’s new operating system.

Although it’s too early to talk about Windows 8 adoption figures, it appears that Microsoft’s latest Windows contraption is currently installed on 1.5 percent of the world’s computer “population.” 36.9 percent of them are obviously desktop systems, while 57.4 percent goes to laptops.

Only 5.6 percent of the devices running Windows 8 are tablets.

According to the same report, only 1.3 percent of the computers in the United States have already deployed Windows 8. Europeans are much more attracted by the new operating system, as 3.2 percent of Hungarian consumers already use it.

Surprisingly, Vietnam has the biggest Windows 8 adoption rate, with 3.8 percent of the local users already making the move to this OS version.

Windows 8 comes with several optimizations to work faster than its predecessors, the Microsoft officials revealed during the launch event that took place last month.

For example, a Windows 7 PC with Windows 8 boots 30 percent faster, while the new operating system can reconnect to a Wi-Fi network in just 1 second. Windows 8 works pretty smoothly on any size and screen, it doesn’t really matter the device you are using, the Microsoft execs said.
