    The figure is far worse!
    Let’s analyze the month’s sale strategy, that was frankly the best MS could roll have out.
    Seriously, MS marketing on February was a true masterpiece, with Office 2013 release at the end of January and release of long hyped Surface Pro with not one but two staged planned shortages, and on a related note the launch of SurfaceRT on many other countries.
    This should have lead great sales, but it didn’t.
    The truth is that Windows 8 is a so hopelessly bad product that even the best marketing nor the strongest leverage on OEMs can help it out of the sales/adoption rate mess it is currently living in.

      Do agree with you all on what you mentioned. Its very straight forward as we count on two things due to which Windows 8 lacks to make it big:
      1. Specs – If one think of what in actual Windows 8 offering – think of as a mango people except “metro interface” what exactly makes a person think to buy this newest version. Moreover, the market still abuzz and is happy to use MS Windows 7 as well as Windows Vista operating system so why one switch to this new Windows 8.
      2. As you say, Marketing – this point makes a lot of sense – counting on this what and in which all ways do MS market this new operating system – if think it of it as, the answer is one – POOR MARKETING STRATEGIES – nothing much.
