Tom Warren reporting at The Verge:
Intel CEO Paul Otellini has reportedly told staff at the chipmaker that Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system is being released before it’s ready. Bloomberg reports that sources who attending a private company event at Intel recently have revealed comments made by Otellini about Windows 8. Intel has been working closely with Microsoft for its latest operating system, but Otellini says Microsoft will make improvements to Windows 8 after it ships — something he reportedly believes is the right move, despite claiming it is being released before it’s ready.
Releasing ultra-premium tablets at high prices with software that’s not ready. I’m sure that will go over well with reviewers and the public alike. We’re month away from Windows 8! Sounds like a plan!
