Windows 8 may be facing slow adoption

Despite all the Windows 8 hype and the millions of dollars Microsoft has spent on promoting the new operating system it seems that most Americans haven’t even heard of it.

According to a survey conducted by the Associated Press 52 per cent of 1200 US respondents said they didn’t know Windows 8 was released with 61 per cent saying they have heard about it but have “little or no interest” in it.

The results may be considered shocking by Microsoft executives who also released Windows RT and Microsoft Surface to cheering crowds this past Friday.

Microsoft bets heavily on Windows 8 – a radically new OS that should take the company to the new touch realities of modern computing but Windows 8 has been getting some bashing lately due to its new GUI formerly known as Metro and the lack of the Start button in the standard desktop interface. Moreover other studies suggest most users do not know how to use the new Windows interface.

Microsoft released Windows 8 on October 26 this year.
