8, Another Success after 7?

Everyone seems to waiting for another OS 8 after the success of 7, which should arrive in rly-2012, has yet to receive much media attention. That’s probably because the most exciting thing we’ve hrd about it so far is that it ‘might’ have an ‘app store’, and other s have all been centered around performance improvements (which are a given).

has a lot riding on 8. Vista hurt ’s reputation (rightly or wrongly), and 7 was its savior. 8 needs to be better than 7 in ways that consumers can see, understand, and experience, and it needs to give consumers a rson to upgrade (or cross-grade) for it to equal or surpass 7. The software giant’s latest relse of has “skyrocketed” PC sales, and scores a rating of”94 percent customer satisfaction”, according to CEO Steve Ballmer.

In the last few yrs, has seen a lot of change – with the departure of Gates, and then Bach and Allard in recent months, and with constant management shuffling, it will be interesting to see how pulls it’s resources together to make 8 the success that many are expecting it to be.
