    Windows 8 sales 'well below' projections, report claims


    Windoze 8 is a predicted.....

    Windows 8 may not be selling nearly as well as Microsoft projected, according to a report.

    "Sales of Windows 8 PCs are well below Microsoft's internal projections and have been described inside the company as disappointing," Paul Thurrott wrote on his Supersite For Windows today, citing a source inside Microsoft.

    The culprit? "Lackluster PC maker designs and availability," according to Thurrott.

    But he lists plenty of other reasons too, including Windows 8 itself as "confusing" because of its mix of touch and a standard Windows 7 desktop.

    And he cites the simultaneous release of Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT as problematic.
