This is surprising, since Gartner has always been Microsoft's BFF (my opinion, based on their studies I've read).
Still, I'd say they're right if they're predicting that Windows 8 won't push a lot of new PCs out the door. Unlike when Win 7 hit, people aren't still mostly clinging to a 10-year old WinXP.
Not changing their 2013 projections just sounds like they're betting both ways. Either they're right this year, and can revise the 2013 numbers in the future, or they're wrong this year "but they knew where things were going".
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
People will be doing their clinging to Win-7 this time around. I agree that Win-8 will not sell a lot of PCs. The majority of sales will go to those who buy new PCs, and not to a lot of upgrades. Just in case I'm wrong, I predict landslide sales next year.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
