Windows 8 up to 3.17%, but still faces big challenges

Windows 8, the latest operating system, was firstly released by Microsoft. It attracted many PC users for many new distinguished features. Take password in Windows 8 as an example.

According to the latest data from Net Applications, Windows 8 has captured 3.17 percent of the global desktop operating systems market share in March, after five months of its official launch.
