Consumers are also still not sure what to make of the two OS flavorsWindows 8 for x86 processors and Windows RT for ARM processorsMainelli said. Microsoft in October shipped Windows 8.1 to succeed Windows 8. They are forced to sell hardware with one of three Windows OSes, thats at least one too many, he said. Microsoft internally has a better handle on it, now they have to market it better. In addition, the application ecosystem for Windows 8 is still weak, Mainelli said. Microsoft is pushing unified application development for tablets and laptops, but that approach is complicated by the different screen sizes on various devices, he said. I dont think thats the best way to write apps for any of those platforms since users interact with different devices in different ways, Mainelli said.
