Sales of Windows 8 OS is quite a mystery : while Microsoft has shared a few lofty numbers, tech media believes otherwise:
“Our primary concern is that we have not gotten any positive reinforcement from the PC food/supply chain that Windows 8 has served as a catalyst for incremental PC demand.
This stands in stark contrast to the launch of Windows 7 that had an almost immediate positive impact on the PC supply chain, as evidenced by official statements from PC OEMs in various earnings transcripts and press/industry reports at the time of launch.
The following data points, supported by our recent in-store checks, point to initial weak sales of Windows 8: Windows sales are down 21% y/y in first four weeks post the Windows 8 launch. Windows 8 tablets described as ‘non-existent’.” [source]
