You are splitting hairs. The truth is, people AREN'T buying new machines in the numbers have have been. People are holding out to see if Microsoft will cave. That's what I'm doing. I'm thinking Win 9 will be out in RECORD time! no need to rush out and replace Win 7.

To ignore the fact that PC sales in general are down, at least partly because the previous generation of hardware was more than good enough and sturdy enough to not need upgrading yet, and laying all the blame for lower sales at the feet of Windows 8 is quite myopic of you.

NO ONE on any of these threads has made the claim that PC sales are down solely because of W8. One of the reasons W8 came to be was because of the migration to handheld devices and many of us believe MS got into a state of panic because of the graphs. and came up with W8.

I don't hate W8, but I hate cold weather. But I am with Glen in that Windows9 may right the MS-ship. I don't begrudge anyone for their preference, if you like the lay-of-the-land of W8, that's wonderful, I'm truly happy for you. Maybe you could do likewise.
