After huge hyping, testing, complaining, cheering on, loving, hating, and various other emotions and events happening around the new and completely different Windows 8, it has finally reached its retail release date. Whether it will get enough users to consider changing to it remains to be seen.

According to online sources, Windows 8 hasn't caught on yet, especially in the business market. A fair percentage of the business clientèle of Microsoft don't want to spend the extra money on re-training their employees in the new functionality and UI of Windows 8, and, in fact, according to Statcounter, many of them are still using Windows XP as their main operating system of choice. Windows 7 has, however, become the dominant operating system in the US, with a  49.36%  score vs the lower 16.42% of Windows XP.

Microsoft might be innovating, and successfully entering the tablet market, with with it comes a reluctance to upgrade where the desktop and laptop community is concerned. Even computer technicians have to learn the new ways of running safe mode, or launching system utilities.

Although Microsoft has most certainly entered the new mobile world, the question does come up; "Why change something that was working fine."
