“With just weeks before the public launch of Windows 8, users are five times less likely to be running the new OS than they were Windows 7 at the same point in its countdown, an analytics firm said today,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.

Keizer reports, “At the end of September 2009, with essentially the same time remaining before its launch, Windows 7 accounted for 1.64% of all Windows PCs, or 164 out of 10,000: That’s five times that of Windows 8 at its T-minus-one-month milestone.”
