While Windows 8 is a horrible operating system and in no way suitable for office work or any other type of work on a computer, there is more to the picture regarding the drop in personal computer sales. When you buy a computer at a retail store, you will be stuck as Windows 8 will be loaded on it. But if you buy a computer online, you can often choose to have your computer shipped with Windows 7 installed. So while Windows 8 may deter retail sales, it should not be a factor in any drop in sales placed through manufacturer's websites.
