Microsoft Had To Do Something So They Created Windows 8

Microsoft launched Windows 8 on October 25th. The event location was Pier 57 in New York City. Microsoft would be publicly unveiling its most important operating system since Windows 95. Why is Windows 8 is so important? Microsoft has only a 1% mobile market share and hasn't been able to transform itself into the more relevant mobile computing world we live in today. I would argue that it's emphasis on an operating system has locked Microsoft into a rigid point of view. The focus of the Windows 8 launch event clearly demonstrated this.

Microsoft got it wrong. Let's hope they learn from this mistake and fix it soon.
