At least according to one OEM source. Hardware 2.0 posted a story that it seems highly likely that Microsoft is planning a big Windows 8 U-turn.

Windows 8 has handed over millions of customers to Apple?


Many PC OEMs are dissatisfied with what Microsoft has done with Windows 8 and the way the company has handled the negative response to the operating system. Privately, one OEM source told me that Microsoft is "destroying" the PC industry, while another claimed that Windows 8 has "handed over millions of customers to Apple."

Other OEMs are making their displeasure known publicly. Both Lenovo and Samsung have released Start button replacements for Windows 8.

As I've said many times already, the PC industry is suffering as consumers shift from spending their dollars on PC to spending their dollars on post-PC devices such as smartphones and tablets. Windows 8 has done little to boost sales, so OEMs will be pinning their hopes on the next big thing to come out of Redmond.
