Here we are...about a week later, and now we can see who knows what, versus who theorizes.
Remember my original claim? I said Windows 8 will be a flop, both in the consumer market, and certainly in the business world. And now we have some numbers to see just how right or wrong I was:
- 74% of organizations have no plans to adopt Windows 8 (source: TechRepublic survey)
- 67% of businesses plan to ignore Windows 8 (source: Forrester Research)
- 90% of enterprises have no plans to deploy Windows 8 in 2012 or 2013 (source: Gartner Research)
I think that pretty much backs up my "no self-respecting CIO" claim.
Those are the most recent three surveys. I can cite about 10 others which also very clearly show that the vast majority of both CIOs AND consumers have little or no interest in Windows 8.
