Microsoft Surface: An error occurred ... Windows not responding – video
http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology...-windows-videoDuring the launch of Microsoft's new Surface tablet in Los Angeles on Monday, Windows president Steve Sinofsky, struggles when the device appears to crash. The tablet, running Windows 8, freezes as he tries to demonstrate how the new Internet Explorer allows the user to 'browse smoothly'. Sinofsky swaps the tablet for a working model before continuing the demonstration
Watch him squirm, mmmwwwwahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa .... If only the backup had failed, it would have been priceless.
Well apparently indeed this looks like another case of Me(or Vista),businesses slow adoption and consumers aren't jumping on it too fast either.
Win 8 sales are below expectations and of course M$ blames the hardware makers:
The good news is that probably Win 9 will set it right.
Those 40 mil licenses were mostly upgrades and it's a known fact the Win8 upgrade was way cheaper than the Win7.I wouldn't call it yet complete success.Same thing with their console division.Even though they sold Xbox360 dirt cheap they cashed in with the licenses if you wanted your game there,even with this their console division operated at a loss for years.Also if the businesses adopting rate isn't very good you already lost a nice slice of bacon.
