Intel results show Post-PC era is really starting to happen

""Windows 8 and new designs did not provide the hoped and awaited boost..."

No sh*t sherlock. Have you seen Windows 8 in use in an enterprise environment? It is miserable.

I tried to test Windows 8 for at least a month but I couldn't stand it for an hour and re-imaged back to Windows 7. The UI is such a clusterfuck..

The biggest of many mistakes made with Windows 8 was to try and migrate the server products to a touchscreen interface. It would seem nobody involved with product planning has visited a server farm recently.

No kidding, the $40 Window 8 pseudo-Pro upgrade was the ONLY reason anyone bothered trying it. MS' only hope is to take Windows 7 completely off the market and force people to Window 8 through attrition.

I just gone done with a process documentation project for a Win7 migration at a Travelers insurance for 10,000 end users, now I am working for Cigna healthcare as a regular network tech but they are ramping up for the same migration along with outlook and office 2010. And from seeing this I am hoping win7 will become the replacement for XP so the end of life date will be a long time away so I don't have to upgrade all my friggin computers in 3 years because no corporation wanted to adopt the OS. But from what I have been seeing over the last year all the big Corporations now are running around like a chicken with there heads cutoff playing catch up but what else is new.

Isnt one big corporate issue is that lots of corps have things requiring IE6 on their Intranet apps? And Win7 does not have IE6.

It depends on the apps the lines of business need to run, but from what I see shimming the program right now is the band aide and or VM to keep it running.
