the hardware for general purpose computing is obviously relatively less popular. but MS don't sell that, so what do they care.
their concern should be that the software you interact with on general purpose PCs is increasingly not running on the machine, i.e. it's moving into a domain over which they have no influence and little financial stake.
the other problem they have is no developer of consumer software in their right mind would develop for windows. and uniquely among the big companies, they totally depend on other developers to make their platform attractive. they're doing a decent job of turning the reality around, but the damage to the perception has been done.
