Windows 8 sales said to be well below projections

Paul Thurrott from SuperSite for Windows received word that sales of Windows 8 are well below Microsoft's internal projections. He says that internally, Microsoft is blaming PC makers for the slower-than-anticipated adoption of Windows 8. Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn't shared any hard date about Windows 8's adoption rate yet.
One of my most trusted sources at Microsoft confirmed Windows 8’s weak start this week. And with all of the drama surrounding Windows 8 and the recent, unexpected departure of Windows chief Steven Sinofsky, rumors are sure to swirl. But looked at logically, some trends emerge.

Microsoft blames the PC makers. My source cited to me the PC makers’ “inability to deliver,” a damning indictment that I think nicely explains why the firm felt it needed to start making its own PC and device hardware. In a related conversation with Microsoft the week after BUILD, I floated the notion that the company’s retail store expansion could one day lead to it becoming the number one in-store experience for PC makers’ wares, a not-so-subtle change in their relationships. This idea had clearly been considered as a possible future, leading me to believe that Microsoft has indeed soured on its traditional partner relationships and is looking to shake things up.
