Windows 8 first impressions for CIOs and IT pros

By Jonathan Hassell, CIO |  Operating Systems, Microsoft, windows 8

On tablets such as the Microsoft Surface, on the other hand, I'm willing to bet Windows 8 will shine. There is some beautiful new tablet hardware coming that will change how business users can interact with their portable devices. Windows 8 is well-positioned to take a lead in that space. On any hardware, too, there are some clear improvements.

Overall, Windows 8 deserves more credit than I, and a lot of reviewers and the blogosphere, have thus far given it. Don't disregard it.
