After seeing the awesome preview of Windows 8, Apple users have started complaining that it is going to fail. They want it to copy Apple’s iOS and run a separate OS for tablets and desktops. This article pretty much sums up my thoughts on the subject. I would love to own an iPad, but it doesn’t have what I want to do: desktop functionality.
If Windows 8 includes the ability to actually do WORK on it, then it will be successful, and I will buy a tablet powered by Windows 8. If it were to be a tablet only, with a limited set of functions and applications, then I will skip it, just like I have with the iPad. I own an iPod Touch for the music player. That’s it.
If I could take a tablet with me anywhere, and have a keyboard/mouse, then I’d be able to do what I want, when I want. If I want to read a book or watch a movie, I can. If I want to do work, I can. Easily. That’s what Windows 8 is for. It’s not for limiting what you can do, it’s for removing the limits and giving you the freedom to do what you want!
