Windows 8 Sales Disappoint in Shaky PC Market

It used to be that a new version of the Windows operating system was enough to get people excited about buying a new computer, giving sales a nice pop. Earlier versions of Windows all came out during periods when the PC’s status as the center of computing seemed far more secure. Not this time. Windows 8, the latest edition of Microsoft’s software, failed to pack shoppers into a Microsoft store in a mall here last week, at a time when parking lots in the area were overflowing. The trickle of shopping bags leaving the store with merchandise was nothing like the steady stream at a bustling Apple store upstairs.
