Intel Intel CEO Paul Otellini on Windows 8 x86 and Windows 8 ARM: "We have the advantage of the incumbency, advantage of the legacy support. Not just in terms of applications but devices." Yes, because the lack of their favourite Windows applications was really a massive hurdle for Apple and its ill-fated iPad effort from a few years ago. Anyone remember that thing?

A device thats advertised as windows will lead customers to believe it has the same capabilities as any other windows device, when they find out it doesn't then they will be angry...

I have seen several people buy windows mobile or windows ce based devices expecting to be able to install the same apps they used on their desktop, this leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
