You would think that Vista was about the worst thing to ever happen to consumer Windows sales. However, the netbook phenomenon, which had been the major growth driver for PC makers and, thereby, Microsoft, coming to an inglorious end, it’s obvious things could and did get worse.
Blah, blah, blah — the iPad isn’t hurting PC sales or so says a chorus analysts. Here’s another data point that says otherwise.
BusinessInsider, quoting data from Citi analyst Walter Pritchard, reports that consumer Windows sales have fallen for the first ever.
So, what’s the big change factor since the “end” of the Great Recession? Apple’s iPad is the disruption and it has caused (small grain of salt) consumer Windows sales to fall for the first time.
This couldn’t be happening to a nicer company…
What’s your take?
