    Microsoft Can’t Catch a Break: Tablet Sales “Almost Nonexistent” According to NPD


    Editor's note: This post originally appeared on Business Insider

    NPD research published some horrible news for Microsoft (MSFT) this week:

    Despite releasing an entirely new operating system on October 22 of this year, WindowsPC sales shrank 21 percent between 10/21 and 11/17 versus the same period last year.

    Windows 8 tablet sales during that period were "almost nonexistent" — just 1 percent of all Windows 8 sales.

    • And just to add a bit of context to this:

      The 40 million W8 licenses sold so far include all licenses sold to manufacturers that will be used for computers that haven't been sold yet. So some unspecified percentage of that 40 million constitutes vapor-licenses ; coming soon but not really there yet.
