We know Windows 8 is important to Microsoft but not in the scale that its chief executive sees it.
According to the Agence France-Presse, Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer described the –generation OS as the “rebirth” of the Windows platform.
The comments were made by Ballmer at the Seoul Digital Forum on Tuesday.
The senior Microsoft executive said that Windows 8 is the “deepest, broadest and most impactful” Windows operating system version made by the Redmond, Washington-based software giant.
According to him, Windows 8 is “really, in some cases, a dawning of the rebirth of MS Windows.”
Furthermore, he said that Windows 8 is “certainly the most important piece of hardware” Microsoft has made.
Windows 8 is expected to be released this October. Windows 8 is seen as a unifying operating system which can be run on smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers.
