Windows "A senior Samsung Electronics executive said Friday the launch of Windows 8 has failed to bolster demand for PCs and he does not expect the PC industry to rebound soon." Of course, Samsung and other OEMs could've, you know, built better computers. Just a suggestion.

This bodes very badly for Windows 8, and the situation is quickly running off of the rails.

I'm not going to comment on Windows 8 here, but I am curious as to, even had Windows 8 been a smashing success, how anybody thought this was going to drive the demand for new PCs? Most PCs that can run Windows XP can also run Win7, and by extension, Win8. There's no reason for most people to run out and buy a new PC just for the upgrade.
