The Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Operating System’s latest version is finding its way to meet user expectation. Windows 8 debuted back in 2012 and has seen most buyers of the OS, grumble, rant and finally downgrade to the previous version – crisp and comfortable Windows 7. That Microsoft Corp. thinks that it is in trouble is understood by the recent admission by some of its high-level personnel admitting that Windows 8 is not meeting expected sales figures.
Dell Inc. revenue and income dropped in the second quarter. As a result of weak results Dell decided to cut its third-quarter and full-year profit outlook. Currently customers are reducing their spending on computer purchases as they are waiting for the introduction of Microsoft’s Windows 8 Software. But Dell is not the only one affected by the decreasing trend; the whole PC business continues to struggle as a sluggish economic recovery immerges demand for personal computers.
