Intel hurries to clarify stance on Windows 8

Written by Nedim Hadzic

What we really meant to say is Windows 8 is great

Following yesterday’s report, where Chipzilla’s CEO Paul Otellini told his employees that Windows 8 will not be fully ready at launch, the company hurried to the operating system’s defense.

Intel’s statement starts off with a little bit of history, pointing out the “long and successful heritage working with Microsoft”. The rest of the sentence talks about “delivering devices that provide exciting experiences, stunning performance ad superior compatibility”, although they forgot to mention a few service packs that go in between.

The statement goes on:”Intel, Microsoft, and our partners have been working closely together on testing and validation to ensure delivery of a high-quality experience across the nearly 200 Intel-based designs that will start launching in October. Intel CEO Paul Otellini is on record as saying "Windows 8 is one of the best things that ever happened to Intel," citing the importance of the touch interface coming to mainstream computing and the huge wave of exciting new ultrabook, tablet, and convertible device innovations coming to the market.”

Well, there you have it. Of course, it still doesn’t mean squat when it comes to Windows 8 being fully ready for launch, but Chipzilla has spoken nevertheless.
