Windows "Many PC OEMs are dissatisfied with what Microsoft has done with Windows 8 and the way the company has handled the negative response to the operating system. Privately, one OEM source told me that Microsoft is 'destroying' the PC industry, while another claimed that Windows 8 has 'handed over millions of customers to Apple'. Other OEMs are making their displeasure known publicly. Both Lenovo and Samsung have released Start button replacements for Windows 8." Windows Phone isn't the only thing not catching on. I'm really happy with my Surface RT - warts and all - but there's no denying the response to Windows 8 has been Vista-esque bad.

Ah, yes, the tired Photoshop and AutoCAD canards, the Last True Hope for those who believe in the Eternal Wintel Monopoly.

Hate to break the news, but most people don't use Photoshop, and most have never even seen AutoCAD; but an iPad and a Galaxy, those they've seen! In the meantime, you might look into which operating system is used to render professional movies nowadays. You might also check into which operating system is used to run real 3D design software such as Catia.

I clearly stated that Windows will never die, but the future does not belong to Windows. The Wintel monopoly is toast, and neither Photoshop nor AutoCAD nor your other favorite programs can save it.

Though the latest incarnation of CATIA, V6, supports only Windows on the client side... (yes, this kind of software has long support cycles and so pre-V6 versions are still alive, but...)
