Windows As you all know, Microsoft is hard at work making sure Windows 8 runs well on tablets, including a completely new, Windows Phone 7-like Metro user interface. Another similarity between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 7, apparently, is that Microsoft will be controlling the hardware experience rather tightly. This all comes from Acer CEO J. T. Wang.

The iPad has a huge lead right now, and if the first Win8 tablet is a cheap piece of crap, the OS will be written off with no fair trial. Microsoft is well aware of this, and wants to prevent it from happening.
