SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — It’s been a rough year so far for companies making PCs. Research firm IDC reports that PC sales were down 14 percent in the first three months of the year.
The firm, which has been tracking the industry since 1994, has gone as far as to blame Windows 8 for the sluggish sales.
I think Windows 8 hasn’t been the blockbuster that Microsoft had hoped it would be. Part of that was that it got some bad press. I, like many, thought that taking the ‘Start’ menu was kind of a dumb move, making it harder to get to the desktop.
