Two things made Win8 sales look better after its release:

  1. Win8's release date was October 26, 2013, just in time for the 2013 Christmas sales.  People who bought new PCs for Christmas got Win8.

While true, it does not affect how sales "look".  Both Vista and Win7 were launched in the fall after Microsoft got its act together and realized they needed to launch in the fall instead of in the first quarter of the year to capture more sales.  Maybe even XP came out in the fall. It's been a while since their OS's have not been launched in the fall.

My point was just that Win8's sales could have been a lot more dismal had it not been  for Christmas sales and 3rd party Start Menu fixes.  Nothing else implied.

Best regards,
