• Windows 8 hasn't lifted U.S. tablet or PC sales, NPD says

    Windows 8 has launched for one month. However, according to the NPD Group, Microsoft Corp.'s new Windows 8 has not given a boost to U.S. sales of PCs and tablet computers.

    Since the highly anticipated operating system was launched Oct. 26, Windows device sales have fallen 21% compared with the same period last year, the market research firm said.

    Notebook sales, which have been weak throughout most of 2012, were down 24%, and desktop sales dropped 9%.

    Through Nov. 17, Windows 8 had captured just 58% of Windows computing-device unit sales. That compared with 83% for Windows 7 in the four weeks after that operating system's debut, NPD said.

    Windows 8 tablet sales have "been almost nonexistent," with unit sales representing less than 1% of all Windows 8 device sales to date, NPD said Thursday.
