Windows 8 not halting PC slide

Investor's Business Daily

Microsoft's (MSFT) latest operating system isn't arresting the slowdown in PC sales, according to Nomura Securities. It cut its Q4 unit forecast based on data from Asian PC makers. It now sees a 7% decline, from a previous forecast of a flat quarter. But the analyst sees opportunity for growth in tablets running the Windows 8 OS. Earlier this week, Microsoft said Windows 8 license sales in its first month were ahead of the Windows 7 rollout. Shares rose 1.03% to 27.36.
