Microsoft Surface Review: a Tale of Two Tablets

perplexing.reader Microsoft is betting on next wave (183 comments)

Microsoft don't bother too much in losing this round with windows 8 in the tablets market, they know that is an uphill battle. They are betting in the windows 9. They have 90% of desktop market? If they make a huge mistake with the windows 8 on desktop, they will get 80% of desktop market? So on the next software cycle, they have a lot a people already using windows 8 GUI, because they don't have really any other choices, and will be a more easy sell the next tablet with Windows 9, because they will share the same interface with the "previous windows 8" GUI. Right now they dont have the APPs, dont have the developers, but with the windows 8, this will change, people will develop software for windows 8 interface, and will be ready to develop or port the software to new Windows 9.
