IDC says Windows 8 is irrelevant, will not spur PC upgrades

Posted on Wednesday, December 07 2011 @ 20:57:33 CET by

Market research firm IDC believes Windows 8 will be irrelevant for typical PC users as it barely offers any new and important features that will make people want to upgrade their existing PCs or get a new system.
"Windows 8 will be largely irrelevant to the users of traditional PCs, and we expect effectively no upgrade activity from Windows 7 to Windows 8 in that form factor," an analyst with IDC wrote, reports ZDNet.

Although Windows 8 introduces a number of advantages, like quick boot and other technologies aimed to improve responsiveness of mobile and desktop computers running Windows 8, those capabilities will be barely seen by the majority of end users. What will users see will be tiled Metro interface that may be good for tablets or smartphones, but which is completely irrelevant for personal computers in desktop or notebook form-factors. Since the user interface is barely impressive, there will few upgrades from existing systems.
