    With Windows 8, just what does "no compromises" mean?

    Over the past year, Microsoft has consistently used the phrase "no compromises" to define its overall goal with Windows 8. My experience in a cramped coach seat on a trans-Atlantic flight helped me understand what that phrase really means.

    Very strange take on no compromises. Microsoft's idea of no compromise shines on the tablet PC. Instead of having a laptop and an iPad, a tablet PC consolidates the two. You can have touch, apps, and a Desktop in one. It also shines if you have a smartphone and have apps you use. Theoretically, some of those apps will become Wimdows 8 apps so you don't look like a spoon using your phone to browse content on your phone whilst sitting in front of a very competent machine. Hardware wise, some compromises are made, especially WinRT, but user experience wise, not so much. It adapts to you. You can have a keyboard to type a novel, or a touch one while on a bus or plane. You can use Explorer to copy and paste files, or you can use the apps to explore yr content. It's really up to the user.
