Microsoft's Windows 8 took another knock Wednesday as research firm IDC laid much of the blame for the first quarter's historically-horrible PC numbers at the feet of the beleaguered operating system.

Gartner pegged the global downturn at 11%.

Very interesting article Sid. Maybe I'm part of the problem? I haven't built a computer yet this year and if I did it would have Windows 7 or Ubuntu. I refuse to touch Windows 8.
