Not what i'm seeing.. I'm seeing that most stores still have their Windows 7 pcs showcased and maybe have 1-2 windows 8 laptops that were merely upgraded windows 7 machines. The stores that do have windows 8 ultrabooks, desktops, all in ones and tablets with windows 8 are absolutely packed.
So for those of you who work at stores where they don't give a crap, you guys fail. If you work at a store that bothered to build out a windows 8 display and setup PC's with touch screens, you guys get it.
Can you quite it with the nonsense? You have no clue what corporations want and no clue what end users want. Windows 8 has a lot more even over Windows7 for corporate deployment, management and quite frankly, a lot of IT shops will be thrilled to push out windows 8 because management of infrastructures running WinRT apps is a lot less of a hassle than current win32 apps. There will be a learning curve, but people aren't idiots and learning windows 8 is quite often a lot easier than learning some kludgy sucky line of business application that people learn because its their JOB.
Virtualization, modernizing of apps to html5 and the ability to run remote desktops and remote applications is pushing many corporations to Bring your own device (BYOD) and quite frankly, nothing connects to BYOD any better than a Windows 8 system. Employees will just bring their own device and the apps/services will be virtualized and presented through a controlled fashion.
