Windows After ditching its Windows RT tablets from the US market, Samsung has now also confirmed to Heise.de it's going to stop selling them in Germany and several other European countries. The company cites lack of interest from consumers and confusion over what Windows RT is. Combined with the massive discounts Microsoft is now giving to OEMs, the writing is on the wall here: Windows 8 - specifically on tablets but also in general - is turning into a failure.

There are more people and more computer users now than when Vista released, yet if you compare the two, Vista was more successful than Win8 at launch in terms of raw numbers sold, and even more so in market share. Right now Windows 8 is about as common as Linux among Steam users.


Windows 8 on Steam has a 9% uptake. Compared to 2%ish for Linux.

I think you read their charts wrong.
