Microsoft’s Windows 8 made its entrance to Developers today. The final release date is slated for sometime next year, however Microsoft has made available a free download in both 32 and 64 bit versions. The timing of this major system release still has me curious. I believe that the release of Vista really frazzled people, which brought us to Windows 7 rather quickly as a repair and confidence booster. While a large chunk of consumers may still be on XP, I have to wonder why Microsoft would release Windows 8 so close to Windows 7. Employers have likely just shelled out the cash for a Windows 7 upgrade and will not likely move to Windows 8 any time soon. However, with Microsoft’s failure to adequately reach into the mobile market, this may be their chance to see what Windows 8 can do for them in this arena.
