Google and Bing autocomplete show how much people dislike Windows 8

Google  and Bing  both have an ‘autocomplete’ feature that attempts to predict what you want to search for. The predictions provided by Google and Bing depend on two factors: what other users searched for and your past search history, if you are logged in. If you head over to Google or Bing and search for ‘Windows 8 is ‘ (without the quotes — make sure to have the space at the end; make sure you aren’t logged in), you will get some not-so-flattering suggestions.
As you can see in the above screenshots, both Google and Bing are providing overwhelmingly negative autocomplete suggestions for the statement ‘Windows 8 is ‘. Because autocomplete suggestions are based on popular search queries by other Google/Bing users, this provides us some insights on what other people are thinking about Windows 8. And it clearly isn’t pretty .
Of course, autocomplete suggestions are regularly changing and this is not a scientific method to gauge how people feel about Windows 8 . However, while it may be informal, it surely is informative. Microsoft , you have a steep hill to climb to change people’s minds. Best of luck.
