Dell seeing strong demand for Windows 8 in both consumer and business


Speaking at Dell World customer conference in Austin, Texas, Dell CEO Michael Dell says that he’s seeing strong demand for computers and tablets running Windows 8.

“The interest in Windows 8 is quite high, even among commercial customers” who tend to be slower to install new software, he said.

Poopooing the post-PC propaganda, he noted “PCs are still how business gets done.”

Microsoft had earlier announced that it sold more than 40 million Windows 8 licenses in 30 days, but most analysts are claiming slow adoption of the new OS. Dell’s statement indicates that this view may not be as accurate as the analyst consensus may indicate.
