re: Microsoft Earnings Show Windows 8 Pre-Sales Strong
This pre-sales figure is a useless metric. It's all based on OEM orders. They are making a big push in the hope that Windows 8 will help bolster their flagging PC sales and help give some new devices a boost. Most people are in the Wait & See mode when it comes to Windows 8. Most of us remember Millenium and Vista all too well. I hope it's a success and changes the face of computing, but I'll hold off on adoption until I see it in action for awhile.
