Windows 8 Sales Allegedly Below Projections

There hasn't been a whole lot of love for Microsoft's new operating system as of late, and it looks like all of the negativity has directly affected sales, as a new report suggests that Windows 8 has failed to find the success Microsoft was expecting.

According to Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows (via GameSpot), a "trusted source at Microsoft" has said that the sales of Windows 8 were not only described as being "disappointing" but also "well below Microsoft's internal projections."

As far as we know right now, Microsoft has sold a total of 4 million copies of the operating system. Let's also not forget that the company's new line of Surface tablets just recently launched with the software as well.
