Mac Users Are Likely to Choose Latest OS X Version
According to the latest estimates, Mac users are four times more likely to upgrade to the latest OS X version than PC users to the latest Windows version. To be honest, I’m not surprised.
Here’s what ComputerWorld writes (via
Microsoft has convinced just 11.6 percent of Windows users who acquired their system since 2001 and still actively use it to go online to migrate to the current edition of its operating system.
Apple’s convinced 41.6 percent of Mac users who acquired their system since 2001 and still actively use them online to adopt the current edition of the OS.
There’re several possible reasons for such difference.
The first reason is pricing. You see, latest OS X Mavericks was a free update to all those who were using one of the earlier OS X versions. If to speak about previous upgrades, their prices were far more affordable than those of Windows.
The next reason is functionality. While Microsoft is changing Windows user-interface all the time, Apple’s developers simply add new features and make their OS more efficient and stable. Such approach allows Mavericks to run on older hardware without any problems. This is a key to success.
And what operating system is installed on your computer?
