The recovery in PC sales has been postponed until 2017 – and Microsoft and Windows 10 are partly to blame.
Worldwide PC shipments will now fall by 8.7 per cent by the end of the year and growth won’t return for another two years, the IDC said.
The number cruncher had expected that the arrival of Windows 10 in July would herald the beginnings of a turnaround in the fortunes of PC sales. But Microsoft’s decision to push Windows 10 as a free upgrade for 12 months for existing Windows 7 and 8 machines has hurt shipments of new machines.
Microsoft estimated on Wednesday that Windows 10 had hit 75 million devices in its first month of availability.
