Another humiliation for Microsoft? Seems like it. After the critical drubbing the company has had for Windows 8, a PC services company has recently ranked the 13-inch MacBook Pro as being the laptop that does the best job running Windows software. And, yes, the MacBook Pro is manufactured by Microsoft rival Apple.
CNET recently reported on a study by Soluto that examined the frequency of frustrating events on Windows laptops. The study looked at everything from crashes to blue screens to hang-ups. The laptop that experienced the fewest of those annoying events? The 13-inch MacBook Pro.
Soluto researchers found that Windows programs were simply less buggy when they were installed and run on a MacBook Pro. And, yes, this ought to be awkward for Microsoft. Traditional PC makers such as Acer and Dell ranked behind the MacBook Pro.
According to Soluto, the MacBook Pro suffered fewer crashes, hang-ups and blue screens when running Windows software. The MacBook also booted at a faster rate. So what does this suggest? Just that Microsoft’s rough patch continues.
