Scratching the surface

Microsoft has given an indication of a change of direction for Windows after tacitly admitting that the whole Windows 8 thing isn't quite working out as well as expected.

Redwood's latest operating system has received a mixed reaction and their first ventures in to the hardware market with the Surface Tablet and Surface Pro Tablet/PC hybrid has not been tearing up trees at retail and Microsoft is looking to bring new, smaller Windows 8 devices to market in the coming months.


“We are working closely with the [hardware makers] to help them take Windows 8 across different form factors,” said Peter Klein, Microsoft's outgoing chief financial officer at a briefing yesterday.

Despite the decline in the fortunes of Windows, Microsoft still reported healthy earnings with the Office and server businesses still thriving.
