Intel Corp. Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini told employees in Taiwan that Microsoft Corp. Windows 8 operating system is being released before it’s fully ready, a person who attended the company event said.
Improvements still need to be made to the software, Otellini told employees at a company meeting in Taipei yesterday, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the meeting was private.
As the article points out, Intel is Microsoft’s closest partner. We’ve heard all sorts of early criticism and doubt pointed at Windows 8 and we have to take most of it with a grain of salt because the majority of us haven’t been able to use it or the tablet/hybrid devices it’s mainly meant for.
But this is for sure: It’s never good when the CEO of your closest partner is openly dissing the most different OS release you’ve ever had as half-baked.
