Enterprise Applications: Windows 8 Threatens Apple, Mac OS X, iOS: 10 Reasons Why
As Microsoft prepares to launch Windows 8 toward the end of the year, just about every company in the market is wondering how they will be affected. Windows is not like any other operating system that just simply hits store shelves and does little to shake things up. Windows has historically been a major change agent in the software space-and with its major modifications, Windows 8 will be no exception. And surprisingly, Apple might be one of those companies impacted greatly by Microsoft's latest offering. For the first time in a long time, Microsoft seems to be acknowledging that it is gunning for Mac OS X and iOS with its Windows launch. Apple is now a major threat to Microsoft's business, and the gloves have come off in Redmond. It's time to fight. And Microsoft plans to do just that with Windows 8. Although Apple appears to be bullet-proof when competitors take aim, Windows 8 is a different story altogether. In fact, Windows 8 could very well become a huge threat to Apple's business over the next several years.
