PC Manufacturers without tablets or mobile devices angry they didn't release a tablet or mobile device - blame it on Windows 8.

That's my version of the headline.

Seriously, if your big sales push relies on somebody else to hype up the entire industry you'll just have to take the lumps that are handed to you.

Uh... Windows 8 tablets aren't doing so hot either, nor are the phones. And I'm not talking about just MS Surface... Dell and others make Windows 8 Tablets too (we have a few at work for testing).

While there are some folks that like the Live Tile Interface (regardless of the platform), It seems most folks DO NOT.

I don't even care for it on a phone. It just doesn't grab me. Granted, it's nowhere near as bad as it is on a non-touch Desktop... but I don't like the layout, nor having all my "icons" spew different things at once. So, for me personally, it's absolutely horrid on the desktop, and mediocre, at best, on touch devices. Mediocre, ain't going to get them any significant market share.

PC Manufacturers Say Windows 8 Has Driven Millions To Become Apple Users.

Man I knew it was bad with casual users but that bad? Wow. Ironically most of the enthusiasts seem to have stayed with Windows 7 or figured out how to disable Dumbtro and made peace with Windows 8. I guess casual users just didn't find it very desirable, certainly not enough to stop seeking the Apple brand.
