Windows Developer Preview Reaches 3 Million Downloads

has revealed that up til now they’ve had 3 million downloads. So at least 3 million developers and enthusiasts have found enough reason to at least give Microsoft’s newest OS a look. So I realize we can’t really compare the 3 million downloads to how successful Windows will be, but it does show there is at least some interest in the platform. On the other side of the argument, many of these enthusiast downloads might have been sparked by controversy and users wanting to see if Metro was as bad as some claim (this was my original reason for downloading WDP). I think that making a judgment call for or against Windows 8 this early in the game is nothing more than pulling out the crystal ball or making wild assumptions based entirely on opinions. I have my own opinion on how the OS will do, but I respect different views. Personally, I think Windows 8 will target a more casual market than in the past (tablets and just every PC users), but as long as desktop mode exists it will still also be used for power users as well. For non-casual users will there be enough reason to upgrade right away from Windows 7? Honestly, that is a hard question to answer and so we will see in time. What do you think about Microsoft’s news of having 3 million copies of WDP downloaded? What do you think about Windows 8 from what you’ve seen so far? To get a clearer picture of what we should expect from Windows 8, we really need to wait until we get our hands on Windows 8 BETA in February. Rest assured that as soon as it becomes available I will be downloading it and have plenty more to say.]]>
