>> about 75% of whom say Windows 8 is meeting expectations,

So... considering how pessimistic people have been about the Windows 8 launch you are suggesting it's been a pretty bad launch?

"Meeting Expectations" doesn't mean a whole lot to me and certainly doesn't sound like they are flying off the shelves.

It also contradicts other sources

>>>>>>>>>>>>>

... production of notebook computers this quarter is coming in “worse than expected,” perhaps flat with Q3's level versus a prior expectation for growth of 5% to 10% from Q3, confirming previous inquiries, and she notes, too, that her sources claim “recent [Microsoft (MSFT)] Win8 notebook order cancellations from OEMs as they revise downward views of holiday demand.”

>>> I would love to get some real numbers from MSFT.

Me too!
