Windows PC Sales Down 21% Since Windows 8 Launch

That's kind of odd, really. I went shopping for a new PC the two weeks following the launch of Windows 8, and no new computer had it installed-- it was either offered as a free upgrade by the store, or they simply promoted Microsoft's own $15 upgrade promotion for new computers.
