PC makers plan rebellion against Windows at 2014 CES

Fearing rapidly plummeting sales of traditional laptops and desktop computers -- which collapsed by as much as 10 percent in 2013 -- manufacturers are planning a revolution against Microsoft and the standard Windows operating system, analysts say.

At the mammoth Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in early January, multiple computer makers will unveil systems that simultaneously run two different operating systems, both Windows and the Android OS that powers many of the world’s tablets and smartphones, two different analysts said recently. The new devices will be called “PC Plus” machines, explained Tim Bajarin of Creative Strategies.

interesting!
That may shake things up a bit, and hopefully for the good.

Re: PC makers plan rebellion against Windows at 2014 CES

Good news overall.

Windows is a fairly good product, IMO. But having competition is also good, healthy and essential. Even though I think Android OS is still a long way to make any actual threat to Windows as desktop OS, any 'revolution' has a starting point.

Microsoft has been, more or less, a one-product company and is not known for tolerance. I wonder what Microsoft is going to do to these PC makers.

This is further evidence that MS has to do something quickly to satisfy Win8 users. I think 8.2 will be coming as quickly as possible, it will be free, and it will be designed to make Win8 more desktop user friendly i.e. bring back Win7 user interface.
