So Microsoft has launched its Windows 8 operating system and the Surface Tablet. A few of the tech reviewers have been giving their comments and they don't seem to be flattering to Microsoft. It looks like its going to be a struggle for Microsoft to push their way into the tablet business, what with two other giants, Apple and Google, dominating the arena.
This is a comment from Tab Times about Microsoft's debut of their Surface Pro.
Another one from Mashable was titled: "Opinion: Microsoft’s Astonishing Windows 8 Boondoggle".
Of course I realize that Microsoft has taken a lot of flak over the years from many quarters for the various parties, customers, tech reviewers, even regulators, and still survived it all. However, in the coming decades, as tablets become more prevalent and take over the PC as workhorses in the workplace, the Microsoft dominance will wane. It is struggling to keep re-inventing itself, to maintain its relevance in the future, and it would be interesting to see what new ideas Microsoft can come up with to go ahead of the tech curve.
