This is bullsh*t but Microsoft do need to get rid of that Steve Ballmer lad because the companies value has more than halved since he took over at the top, Uncle Bill needs to come back full time and steady the ship. If Microsoft are in trouble i doubt they would be selling the xbox brand to Sony because they have not got a pot to p!ss in, they need the PS4 to be huge

So when your product has a lower adoption rate than it's worst version it's not a failure? Hell, Windows 8 i CHEAP right now and they're raising the price by 400%. That thing is not going to get better.

Windows 8 will be built into computers so whether people want it or not they wont have a choice when they buy a new one unless they go to Mac where they are gonna find sh*tloads of software and games they wont be able to play or use. As it is if people have windows 7 there is no need to upgrade unless touchscreen us their thing

PC sales are down as a whole Jizzmon. They were down before Windows 8 released. The casual consumer is spending $400 on a new iPad, not a PC or Mac. It's okay though, we know you want Microsoft in the bankrupt line behind Sony. Too bad that's not happening.

it has a lower adoption rate because win7 is essentially brand new,and works damn great.windows is 8 was made to integrate all ms projects includin 360 and 720.not to mention every company that makes pc's will likely be on win8 by early to mid of this year.

If windows 7 was "brand new" then they wouldn't put out windows 8. Fact is, people don't have a reason to update to windows 8 yet. It's a great OS, but M$ hasn't found a way to convince the consumers. Hell, they can't even make a good commercial that shows what their product is good for.

wtf is that supposed to show me? That I can sign into a metro start screen with my fingers? What if I don't have a touchscreen computer? Then what? Hell, I didn't know I couldn't get that feature without a touchscreen computer until I got my computer. I thought I could just use a mouse for that. Windows 8's ads are straight garbage.

Lmao ppl in here need to take business classes or something. The Xbox brand is one of the most vital to M$ right now. TVs OSs is one of the last fronts where M$ has an advantage. Apple TV hasn't taken off. Android Smart TVs haven't taken off. Xbox is a well established brand on the TV front. All the updates to make Xbox more like windows 8 and set it up with more entertainment features. M$ isn't just competing with Sony and Nintendo but they are battling Google and apple as well. The smartest thing for M$ to do is to continue to merge Windows and Xbox.

Windows smart TV should have the ability to stream Xbox 720 games and have kinect in them or something that leverages windows and the Xbox brand.

Xbox isn't going anywhere for M$. Would be gje biggest mistake ever for them. AnM$ is hardly strapped for cash. These tech companies are sitting on a ton of cash.

ms has a history of puttin out back to back versions of windows.u probally werent born when win98 was released,so before u comment,history is somethin u should know.win98,win98 2nd edition,and win m.e,and win2000 were all released in barely a 2 year span.

windows has been runnin for ova 20 years.it doesnt need a good commercial to show off.if u want a new pc in 2013,its what u will get wether u like it or not.if u are gonna use ms game systems,u will likely be usin win8 in some capacity

The article actually does have a point

No profits from Xbox, people are progressively gravitating away from Windows to the ever increasing popular Mac....

Microsoft gone need some restructuring
If mac was so popular software production would be 1:1 by now dont you think.

How many people do you know own a Mac tower? No no ill wait..... No seriously post.

I dont know anyone who has a mac tower, they cost like 3g for subpar specs. Specs required to compete with gaming pc's that are far cheaper.

Not riding for either side, but Xbox's demise would be to the disadvantage of Sony/PS fans. No comp means Sony can do whatever the fukk they want. The less options consumers have, the more power businesses gain. So if Xbox were sokd to a company that couldn't advance the platform, Sony will juice n*ggas.
