yes i guess that explains it.dazla-d said:The explanation is that market GROWTH for PC's has significantly slowed due to less money being available mainly in the consumer market.jamie said:*snip*
Most, in fact nearly all, new PC's run Windows. Slowing of PC growth means slowing of Windows sales. Changes in a PRE-RELEASED version of Windows will have absolutely zero impact on Windows revenue, y'know?
And slowing of PC growth is only a factor, not the whole answer. But on the flipside, S&T growth increased - S&T is the products corporations buy to help them reduce costs and save money.

if you ignore uptake only on regular - pc unit (forced) adoption (not many willing upgrades)
and if you ignore the 4 articles I linked too.
