Acer has been a vocal critic of Microsoft and Windows 8, but now has some reason to be optimistic. Microsoft appears to be listening to its partners a bit more when it comes to Windows 8.
That's according to Acer President Jim Wong, who spoke to The Wall Street Journal
for a story published Thursday.
Acer has been among the most vocal critics of Microsoft, complaining that sales of Windows 8
devices have been disappointing and knocking the software titan's attempt to get into the hardware business with the Surface
tablet. Even Microsoft has acknowledged that more work needs to be done to educate consumers on Windows 8 and Windows RT -- the latter being the stripped-down version of the operating system.
But Acer and Wong apparently had a change of heart, now saying that Microsoft has gotten more considerate of its partners and is more readily embracing their feedback.
