The Future is Apple



Windows Users Jumping Ship to Apple: Survey

Excerpt:
Anti-virus company Avast conducted a survey of Windows-based PC users the day before Windows 8 was released. The results were devastating for Microsoft (MSFT) and non-Apple PC makers. They were excellent, meanwhile, for Apple (AAPL). ...
  • The survey covered 135,000 Windows users split across three versions of the operating system: Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.
  • Only a very small percentage of users--9%--said they were going to accelerate a purchase of a new computer because of Windows 8.
  • Overall, 16% of those surveyed said they planned to buy a new computer 
  • Of these folks, a staggering 42% said they plan to buy an Apple product--either a Mac or an iPad.
  • Most of the Apple buyers (30% of the total buyers) planned to buy an iPad, suggesting that some of these planned purchases are motivated by the desire to buy a tablet. (Maybe Microsoft can save some of these with strong sales of the Surface.)
  • The rest of the switchers, 12%, planned to buy a Mac.

  1. I think I've heard this before. Maybe in 1984? :)
