re: Microsoft's Dilemma: Windows 8.1 May Not Be Enough
I don't really care one way or the other. I am unlikely to buy a windows tablet, I just don't see how it will improve my life over that of an Android tablet. And I'm pretty sure that my Win 7 Desktop is likely my last Windows Desktop. Let me make this clear, I will buy another desktop machine eventually, but it is unlikely to have Win 8 or above on it (or at least, not for long) I just don't believe Microsoft understands the world they helped create.
I'm pretty sure Unbutu, is the next desktop OS for me. I've got it loaded on a spare PC, and I'm impressed. When the major photographic software publishers start to support it, or the current LInux Open source Photo software projects start to improve their product (inevitable - Lightzone is just the beginning), I'm out of Windows permanently.
