Talks about why it’s very important for Intel.
Everyone knows that Windows 8 is an extremely important and risky affair for Microsoft itself, but looks like there’s someone else for whom the upcoming operating system may be even more important – Intel.
News.com reports that during a conference, Intel’s CEO Paul Otellin gushed about the operating system and its significance to Intel:
“I think it’s one of the best things that’s ever happened to our company.”
Calling it a ‘very good operating system’, he continues:
“What Microsoft is doing is making that seamless for them. And they have a new experience, which they call Metro, that’s the interface up there. But for Intel-based machines, there is also one button that basically takes you back to your classic Windows experience and that’s a software button essentially.”
The partnership between Microsoft and Intel has definitely worked wonders so far and since they are an equal part of the risky new operating system, it makes sense why it would be important for them that the operating system doesn’t flop out with audiences. But so far, it looks promising and looks like Microsoft is adamant not to make it Windows Vista 2.
