If you don't know what OEM means, since Apple doesn't allow such things, ask Siri, but if she doesn't know, Google or Microsoft will be glad to provide you with the definition.
Perhaps Ziff Davis should resurrect the MacWorld title and retire PCWorld. "Articles" such as this one have made it irrelevant.

I MEAN WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!!!!!!!
It must me that abstract thinking ability my mother told me I had when I was not doing well in high school. Could not do any math but if you told me to go to the corner I sure knew where that was.

Didn't usage data for Windows 8 show like 1.5% of the market or something? That's alot of PC's. I don't think the 40 million number is too far off at all.

Not just apple....but also the bigger elephant in the room....android sales.
Are returned devices still counted as sales cuz androids are returned far more than iphones.

Anyway, I find the windows 8 os extremely fast and pretty dead on. Multitasking is ridiculously fast (I have an i7 Envy with dual video cards 16 gb Ram and a SATA 3 SSD). The learning curve was a little steep even for me, but a couple of searches on the internet cleared those navigational issues right up.
So, there you have it PC World (I put some emphasis on "PC" World), quite a few users have purchased the Os. And I am waiting for the release of the Pro version to purchase a tablet. I am a developer and I need my full version in order to do what I do.

As I see it all the comments are made by the techies. When it comes to the average Joe Schmoes, they will not be pleased. For one thing, they tend to be reluctant to spend time learning new tricks or in this case a new UI For another thing, most of them only need a good browser and the means for playing games when they aren't e-mailing or surfing the internet or watching youtube. If they happen to be fortunate to have someone introduce them to a good Linux distro (e.g., Mint and MATE, ZorinOS or SolusOS - not Ubuntu anymore - it was "Metro" before Microsoft) and install it, they will never go back to Windows.

Let's see, Microsoft announced a few months ago they sold over 400 million Windows 7, and Windows XP, 2000, Vista and 7 have over some billions software sold. So 40 million looks like a real number (keep in mind that Microsoft sells word wide not just the US).

(pretty much what a lot of us have been predicting for quite a while now...)
Need a Windows ISO image?
