I think that just means non-Win 8 logo PCs will be more usual. It
smells like MS shooting themselves in the foot as far the
compatability logo program goes.
The PR disaster when Win 9 one day comes out and thousands can't
upgrade because of an MS imposed restriction will be interesting.
Imagine MSI or Lenovo rolling out two identical laptops, one with the
Win 8 compatability logo, and an identical model, also with Windows
installed, but with no compatability logo, but with the ability to be
upgraded and run other OS's. Which would the guy in the store
