Six months on, Windows 8 sales are a mystery
The Windows 8 operating system debuted on October 26th, six months ago today. Intended as the savior of a flagging PC industry, Microsoft’s latest software is designed specifically for touch-equipped hardware. While Apple continues to increase its iPad shipments year-on-year, Microsoft and its OEMs are fresh out the gate with an operating system that tries to marry a keyboard and mouse-driven UI to a modern touch-enabled interface. Microsoft provided some early signs of Windows 8’s sales performance, but recently it has been rather quiet. How well is the big Windows 8 gamble paying off?
