re: Windows 8 hurting PC market

NO RATINGS
Microsoft HAS to get into the tablet and smartphone market if they want to survive long term. They need to find a way to do this without alienating their current customer base. When I last checked, MS still had a monster pile of cash. The absolutely have to buy their way into this market. It is very worrying that their execution has been so poor up to this point. There is no reason for MS to fail at making an OS for tablets. Making operating systems for mass market computers has been their bread and butter for thirty years. Tablets and phones are not that different from PCs, just a bit smaller and simpler with a touch screen. Why was Surface so late? Why are the prices so high? Why is the performance so poor? Why can't they build a developer community? Maybe there needs to be some kind a major management purge at Microsoft.
