Windows 8 Sales Sluggish: NPD Group

Nerval's Lobster (2598977) writes | about a year and a half ago

Windows 3

Nerval's Lobster writes "While Microsoft claims it’s sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses in the month since launch—a more rapid pace than Windows 7—new data from research firm The NPD Group suggests that isn’t helping sales of actual Windows devices, which, in its estimation, are down 21 percent from last year. Desktops dropped 9 percent year-over-year, while notebooks fell 24 percent. “After just four weeks on the market, it’s still early to place blame on Windows 8 for the ongoing weakness in the PC market,” Stephen Baker, vice president of industry analysis at The NPD Group, wrote in a Nov. 29 statement attached to the data. “We still have the whole holiday selling season ahead of us, but clearly Windows 8 did not prove to be the impetus for a sales turnaround some had hoped for.”"

There are discussions in Germany to ban the NPD by the constitutional court.

Maybe national democrats are not particular popular among constitutionalists.
