Its because Windows 8/.1 sucks. Its a touch screen OS and 99% of offices still use a mouse and keyboard and Windows 8 is not mouse and keyboard friendly so all those offices that used Windows XP want to keep getting updates and want their software to work so they go to the next compatible OS which is Windows 7. Windows 8/.1 has lots of problems with compatibility and its missing a lot of features that Windows 7 has.
I was lucky to try Windows 8 back in the alpha stage and I reported on it back then that if it was going to be released like it is then it will fail and I was right. It did get released like that and its a flop. NOBODY likes it as a desktop OS, its a touchscreen tablet OS.

Windows 7 was my idea.
Noticed how nobody is owning up to Windows 8?
