The UK's biggest computer retailer Currys and PC World is struggling to shift devices running the new software.
Visiting our local store on Oxford Street in London at midday today to see how the new OS was going down with the general public, ...the popular high street chain was yet to sell one device running Windows 8.
... customers who had visited the store so far didn't seem that interested in Microsoft's new OS ...the retailer is expecting sales "to pick up in the run up to Christmas"
...it seems already that the hype created in the build-up to Microsoft's launch has blown over, leaving a bitter taste in the mouth for retailers like Currys and PC World that were expecting "really strong sales of Windows 8 products".
... the public reacts to one new Apple product in a completely different way than to the array of new devices from Microsoft's OEM partners running the firm's latest OS.
