re: Windows 8.1 Faces October Challenge
I am looking forward to 8.1.
However, I don't business users adopting touch at all. I think its going to boil down to touch for play, traditional mouse for work.

Just like Microsoft Apps Store. Still all of this deckchair rearranging does serve a purpose: it puts off for a few more months Ballmer's day of reckoning with his board of directors.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
