  The strategy Microsoft must pursue to recover from Windows 8
Time: 08:07 EST/13:07 GMT | News Source: InfoWorld | Posted By: Robert Stein

If my InfoWorld colleagues and I haven't made it clear, we believe Windows 8 is a failed operating system, a muddled mess that combines awkwardly the mobile/touch context with the desktop/peripheral-input context. Windows RT is little better; though users can install only Metro apps on it, RT comes with Windows 7-based Office, File Explorer, and IE10, all of which fare poorly in the mobile/touch context. As a result of Microsoft's Windows 8/RT muddle, the iPad is the only sensible tablet option for businesses. But put aside these major flaws and think ahead. Weston Morris at the Unisys consultancy has. Morris, who focuses on the consumerization phenomenon and how to serve enterprise clients on mobile and consumer-class deployments, expects Microsoft to learn quickly from the Windows 8 and RT failures (long pointed out by analysts and pundits like me, giving Microsoft plenty of time to think about them). He expects the platforms to be improved fairly quickly, and a year or so from now, Windows RT Pro or whatever you want to call it will be what Windows 8 and RT should have been in the first place.
