I think MSFT may be on to somethng with Windows 8 and the Surface tablet. I just dumped my trusty iPad for a Surface because I can actually so some work with it since it comes with MS Office. Nifty keyboard, USB port, SD card slot, etc. Figured out the tile interface in about 30 minutes.
The company I work for (14,000 PCs) was going to upgrade from XP to Win 7 this year. Decided to go with Win 8.
A lot of things have changed the stock is at the same price when msft had 30bil cash now has 60bil and many of the employess at my company are getting msft phones which is interesting and have considered investing in NOK due to the fact.
It's an absolute sell. Nothing about Softy has changed. So what some fund manager load the boat. Just another bag holder though with a 2 billion dollar bag. Nothings changed actually things at Softy are getting worse.
