More on Gartner's PC data: Lenovo (LNVGY.PK) passed H-P (HPQ) to become the world's top PC OEM - the former's global share rose 260 bps Y/Y to 15.7%, while the latter's fell 150 bps to 15.5%. Dell's (DELL) global share fell 70 bps to 10.5%, while Apple's (AAPL) U.S. share rose 110 bps to 13.6%. One more troubling piece of info: Gartner doesn't think professional sales were hurt much by Windows 8 anticipation, since most companies plan to take their time to adopt the OS. Update: IDC believes H-P remains on top for now, while estimating industry shipments fell 8.6%.

  • Many IT shops, especially government agencies, will stay with Windows XP up until the last moment, some even beyond end-of-life date when XP support ended, to upgrade to (not Windows 8 but) Windows 7. They have grown fatiqued from constant OS upgrade without seeing cost-saving or tangible benefit.
    Vendors on the other hand are pushing to essentially "rent" their software and coming up with all kinds of fancy ROI analysis to skew the true cost of software rentalship (instead of ownership).
