Re: Worst. PC. Sales. Ever.

Justifiable or not, it hit the headlines in today's Financial Post:

Microsoft’s Windows 8 gets blame for worst PC decline on record

They say there's no such thing as bad publicity, but headlines like this are surely causing concern at Microsoft.   If Windows 8 gets into the popular culture as a "flop" then it's game over for their aspirations in the mobile business.   Yes, I know the headline isn't referring to mobile, but once consumers get the memes "Windows 8" and "flop" associated in their brains, the facts of the case are going to be left behind when they're in the phone store...
