Microsoft has made a slip of the “cursor”. Its release date for Windows 9 is out in the open due to its teaser campaign.
As rumors of the Windows 9 circulate in cyberspace, Microsoft seems to have let the public in on some stuff that was meant to be kept under wraps. The start menu is one of the issues under discussion in most forums.
The introduction of Windows 9 may be a step towards even greater and technologically sophisticated products from Microsoft. The death of the PC and the birth of laptops and smartphones not to mention tablets are in the works.
And though Microsoft has been careless enough (especially its Chinese division) in letting the teaser campaign for Windows 9 become so apparent, what’s done is done and now the consequences will have to be faced.
There is a saying: if life hands you a lemon…make lemonade. And so there is a lesson for Microsoft in this after all. We all must learn from our mistakes no matter how small and inconsequential they may happen to be.
Microsoft however has a handle on the whole situation. It plans to hold a conference where Windows 9 will get a brief intro. The date set for this exposition is 30th September.
And while the date is subject to procrastination or even an earlier debut, the product is a dead cert as far as its specifications are concerned.
Certain changes that have been made in the Windows 9 version are for the better. But it will take some adjusting and acclimatization before the novel experiment in information technology becomes a smooth sailing phenom.
Until then the teaser campaign will continue to set heartbeats galloping and the level of excitement among the geeks and freaks will be at a high pitch indeed.
Microsoft was left behind a long time ago by such pioneers as Apple and Samsung. Yet it has the stamina and perseverance to catch up with these two rivals in no time provided it keeps its wits about it and believes in taking risks.
