Some 1,400 Redmond Report and Redmond magazine readers were kind and patient enough to respond to our Windows 8 survey, and it turns out that Windows 8 is pretty intriguing, at least for 60.9 percent of you. That's how many are very interested (20.7 percent) or somewhat interested (40.2 percent) in using the new OS in their shops.
Win 8 may be good news for OEMs. Perhaps because of its touch interface and new graphics, nearly 60 percent say they will likely buy new hardware to run the new OS.
Redmond readers are still unsure about the exact nature of Windows 8 backwards compatibility, and its migration plans depend on learning more. More compatibility equals more and faster migration. Less compatibility and the opposite happens.
On a personal level, a bit more than a quarter of readers are very interested and a bit less than a third somewhat interested in Windows 8. Top features? Smartphone and tablet integration.
