As more data rolls in, it seems Windows 8 is indeed selling pretty bad despite the cheap upgrade offers. A new chart published by Net Applications shows that Windows 8's uptake trajectory fell behind Vista's for the first time this month.
According to Net Applications, Windows 8's online usage share through Dec. 22 was 1.6% of all Windows PCs, an uptick from 1.2% of November. Windows 8 publicly launched on Oct. 26.
At the same two-month mark in Vista's release timetable, that OS accounted for 2.2% of all Windows systems, double the month prior.
Net Applications measures operating system usage by recording the specific operating system and version used by the machines of visitors to approximately 40,000 sites it monitors for clients.
