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.
This guy Thurott is a notorious Microsoft basher- and is loaded to the gills with Goog and AAPL- got into AAPL late.
Now he wants to get even with Microsoft for putting pressure on the suxers and the crapple boys and his stocks
