re: Are Businesses Waiting For Windows 9?
Im almost laughing here.
OK here is the training, you have 2 modes: tablet and desktop. Understand this, and done.
For desktops, I tweak it so it goes directly into desktop mode (or for anyone that makes this request).
@Mslbfx keep your job as a mac user working at Starbucks.
We can now manage the OS and rollout updates and programs onto people wanting to use a tablet as well as a desktop, oh and its the same device. The user no longer needs 2 devices, each with a separate OS, seperate Apps, and separate management.
For now, we use all tablets as an endpoint only that remotes into a corportate environment where their virtual desktop is provided. The only issue we are having are separating profiles for Win7 and Win8 - this is still experimental and we might just go to virtual Win8 machines to match the user.
I love windows 8 but the idea behind it, is to unify all devices under the same OS. Older x86 programs, however, wont work on a phone with an arm or snapdragon processor and thats why MS wants people to push torwards creating Metro Apps. I think MS kinda misses the point that the "desktop" an x86 apps that use this, will not go away and the "desktop" will not go away at all. People like it and need it.
Businesses are not waiting for Win9, as the wait is for the applications to change, not the OS.
