Microsoft will unveil the Preview version of Windows 8.1 in just a couple of weeks, while the stable build is very likely to see daylight in August.
And even though the tech company has significantly improved specific features, the new operating system is highly unlikely to save
the collapsing PC industry and, consequently, Microsoft.
A research conducted by Citi and published by Win8China
indicates that new PC
sales will continue to go down after the new Windows 8.1 has been released, especially because the upcoming Windows 8 makeover is expected to experience a rather slow uptake.
sales, on the other hand, are very likely to skyrocket in the next couple of months, with 237 million units expected to be sold, up from 144 million last year.
