StatCounter is a popular internet traffic analytical firm and they’ve got some shocking news for the recently released Windows 8. Traffic from Windows 8 has overtaken traffic from Android devices in just over a week of Windows 8 being released. The data provided by StatCounter shows that traffic from Windows 8 surpassed that of Android this past weekend. Of course this data includes all devices and not just mobile, which is the majority of Android devices, but that just goes to show how much staying power Windows 8 will have. Analysts predicted that consumers would buck the Windows 8 trend, but from these stats it looks like they’re embracing it happily.
No official sales numbers have been given since Windows 8 has gone live, but we do know that Microsoft sold four million individual upgrades within the first four days of the new operating system being made available.
