Windows 8 may not be selling nearly as well as Microsoft projected, according to a report.
"Sales of Windows 8
PCs are well below Microsoft's internal projections and have been described inside the company as disappointing," Paul Thurrott wrote
on his Supersite For Windows
today, citing a source inside Microsoft.
The culprit? "Lackluster PC maker designs and availability," according to Thurrott.
But he lists plenty of other reasons too, including Windows 8 itself as "confusing" because of its mix of touch and a standard Windows 7
And he cites the simultaneous release of Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT as problematic
