    Hi there
    if Gartner's say something usually the OPPOSITE is usually true --that "consultancy" has about as much use as a Solar Powered can opener at the bottom of a deep goldmine.

    If Gartner's are saying W8 sales aren't as expected just wait a couple of months and their estimate will be totally be shown to be nothing more than a "Guestimate".

    Since W8 has only been officially released for less than a WEEK I doubt whether even MS themselves have got the sales returns in -- most retail outlets won't even SUBMIT their results for at least a month so where on earth do Gartner's get their stats from --presumable as always from "thin air".

    Remember we've got W8 for tablets and Phones to come as well.

    Cheers
