Windows Microsoft's Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Windows Phone, talks about the competition. "With iPhone, I sense that it's running out of steam.

If I had a choice, no W8 sale.

I really don't think a majority of people do what you did, so your anecdote is irrelevant.

My point was to counter the notion that Windows 8 isn't selling. That's wrong. It is.
