Why Windows 8 is the Riskiest Product?
January 12, 2011 1 Comment
In response to question: What’s the company’s riskiest bet? at Gartner Symposium last October, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s answer is: “The next release of Windows.” Windows is no doubt the most critical product for Microsoft’s bottom line, if Ballmer say Windows 8 is the company’s riskiest product coming out, the message carries a lot of weight. Neither Ballmer nor any others from Microsoft have given any explanations about this comment, all of us can only guess what it means. Well, the picture wasn’t clear until this year’s Consumer Electronic Show (CES 2011).
