Samsung executive says Windows 8 is no better than the Windows Vista platform

Samsung executive slams Windows 8, says it's no better than Vista

The president of Samsung's mobile chip division, Jun Dong-soo, has had some very interesting comments to say regarding Windows 8 when speaking with The Korea Times. The Samsung executive said: "The global PC industry is steadily shrinking despite the launch of Windows 8. I think the Windows 8 system is no better than the previous Windows Vista platform."

With Windows Vista being one of Microsoft's low points, it is quite the statement to make. Samsung is a big partner to Microsoft, another point to consider when thinking about that strong statement. The Samsung executive had even more to say, adding:

 

MS's rollout of its Windows Surface tablet is seeing lackluster demand ... Meanwhile, previous vigorous pitches by Intel and MS for thinner ultra-books simply failed and I believe that's mostly because of the less-competitive Windows platform.
