With Windows 8, Microsoft seems to be indicating a willingness to shake things up in order to better compete in a new world of devices. Change is clearly needed. After years of dominating the computing universe, Microsoft has seen a number of incursions into its core business.
A resurgent Mac has grabbed a significant share of the computer market, while the iPad and other mobile devices have also taken momentum and sales away from the traditional computer business. And as much as Microsoft needs an answer to the iPad — and it clearly does — the threat posed to today’s Windows extends far beyond the tablet.
The type of mobile computing that dominates the smartphone and tablet markets today is poised to move into laptops and desktops, as well. On the laptop side, in particular, customers clearly want the same thinness and long battery life that is found on tablets.
