    Fair objective critique of W8 in Business sector

    Hi there
    This IMO is an objective and about the fairest review I've seen on the adoptobility of W8 in the business sector.

    Ms shouldn't worry about its future as a company as it's beginning to get more revenue from its other divisions than Windows itself so don't sell MSFT stock just yet.

    Interesting. There have been a few other surveys and reports saying that some enterprises will be skipping, as they already went to 7. Most don't have plans on moving to 8 or haven't got that far as to consider an upheaval, but about 20 or so percent say that they will.

    Either way, Microsoft will still get revenue from 7 and Office and other software so there is not really any loss.

Finally a DECENT full and objective review of surface RT
Hi everyone This seems for once a complete (with pics) and unbiased review of the surface RT tablet. Actually from this it looks far far better than I had imagined --and I'm not really a tablet lover either. If the PRO (full std W8 version) is as good even I might be sorely tempted. ...
