    People crave Windows 8 tablets at work more than iPads

    Humans have an insatiable desire for novelty.

    Ask them what they want today and it's whatever is new today.

    This is something that might be music to Microsoft's lobes and loins. For a thorough piece of research by Forrester suggests that those who work in information would prefer it if they could have a new, exciting Windows 8 tablet for work, rather than an iPad.

    With timing that some might see as wafting between propitious and suspicious, this research offers that 32 percent of those surveyed declared their panting desire for a sexy new Windows 8 work machine.

    As ReadWrite reports, a mere 26 percent said please could they have an iPad.

    The lovely thing about this research is that it wasn't conducted among 300 people who happened to be hanging around on Twitter, seeking a free thrill.

    No, this sample size was 9,766 "information workers."

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
