Windows 8: 8 Big Benefits For SMBs
November 19, 2012 11:06 AM Windows 8 adoption carries some possible trouble and many potential benefits for small and midsize businesses. Use these factors to decide if it's worth the risk.
Benefit #6: Touchscreen Capabilities
I've previously laid out why the touchscreen PC isn't grabbing me, but it would be narrow-minded (and a tad egomaniacal) to think touch doesn't hold appeal for other businesses. In fact, I can see plenty use cases: reception and other front-office roles, sales, event management, medical offices, retail stores and many others. Touch has already become second nature for many as a result of tablets and smartphones, but Windows 8 could popularize touch on PC form factors. (There's no such thing as a touchscreen Mac, after all.)
