If you think just about everybody truly hates Windows 8, you may be surprised to find that isn't really the case. The number of dissatisfied customers is far less than one would expect if you believe all of the noise coming from the Internet over the initial release. A recent comparison was compiled using ratings from a sampling of 3K Windows 8, 7 and Vista users to obtain an overview of how each fared on rollout. Windows 8 is indeed less popular than Windows 7, which has very high approval ratings. But it's far more popular than Windows Vista, which was well and truly hated.
