re: Windows 8.1: No Cost, Big Pressure
"This growing app catalog also offers compatibility with legacy x86 apps to give Windows 8 a range of titles and functionality that competitors -- particularly those in the tablet space -- simply cannot match."

Cudos Michael. Your comment above is a KEY takeaway that I think the vast majority are missing the point about. Win8 is a way to take what you already have and continue to build a new future with it as well. I think it is shameful for those who choose to be ignorant of the facts to continue to diss on the platform.

Let's hope they really got it figured out and put some type of start button, and boot to desktop option in there.

Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
