I use windows 8 pro on my laptop an everyone goes on about lack of apps well they have all the popular apps that apple appstore an play store has just not as many games but at least they got street fighter lV which looks impressive on my led HD screen unlike android but then again PC games kill any iOS,android or console game out there, besides google an root apps I don't use anything else on my gnex.

I actually had to read 3 times to understand.
But it is actually about the mobile version.

Windows no doubt will continue to rule in in the workspace with windows 8 on tablets. So most people will need one. When it come s to the mobile phone market apple and Google should dominate for awhile.

I don't know how you didn't understand my post I clearly said windows 8 pro on my Pc, but I agree win 8 on a smartphone or tablet would be complete garbage compared to android, its a no brainer win8 mobile clearly sucks but so did android before ICS an jellybean came along, I absolutely despised gingerbread an anything before it compared with iOS back then.

Fyi All windows 8 operating systems can be considered mobile now. Just depends on what hardware its on. Tablets with keyboard attachments are going to be huge in 2013.

No they aren't. Just because companies will make them doesn't mean they will be huge. Adding a keyboard attachment defeats the entire point of a tablet and I think the market will respond accordingly.

I think Windows 8 phones might start to catch on in enterprises but for the mainstream users they will probably stick with Apple or Android. How well the phones integrate to the Office suite of products will drive the success or failure of the Windows 8 OS in my opinion.

That's funny because when I hear "infected" the first word that comes to mind is "noob.".
