“Hello, Windows 8? This is iPad你赢了。”

那是Paul Thurrott,从微软的Build会议发推文我会把它归咎于未来的索赔杂货,当然,现在让我们以最不起眼的方式考虑这个问题我们可以管理对我来说,这条推文说了很多。

微软的一切 - 除了手机一体机操作系统的Windows 8战略的一个含义是它可能完全失败作为iPad的竞争对手,但仍然是一个成功的操作系统I’m imagining here in this paragraph a scenario where Windows 8 proves to be good and popular for traditional desktop and notebook PCs — where by “good” let’s say we mean “better than Windows 7” — but doesn’t gain any traction at all in the tablet market.

然而,Thurrott所说的是,微软今天在Build上展示的Windows 8作为平板电脑操作系统是如此引人注目,以至于iPad如果是拟人化的,就会在这一点上放弃。

What did Microsoft show, though? They showed a Metro-style touchscreen tablet user interface that is, without argument, original没有指责在这里扯下iPad微软令人钦佩地开辟了自己的道路。

但据报道,该操作系统至少在一年内没有问世三星的演示平板电脑硬件正在向他们展示(并向Build参与者赠送)是基于英特尔的Core i5充满风扇的PC从规格来看,这些单位更像是MacBook Airs而不是iPad据推测,实际发售iPad竞争的Windows 8平板电脑将使用低功耗的移动CPU - 无论是ARM,Atom等等,只要它们具有iPad级别的长电池寿命和低温。

How will Windows 8 run on such hardware? When will they actually ship? How many as-yet-unannounced iPad 3s will Apple have sold by the time the first Windows 8 tablet hits stores? (Not to mention the many tens of millions of iPad 2s Apple will sell in just the next quarter alone.)

一切都在将来所有潜力,没有实际意义想想苹果和微软的方法有多么不同。苹果推出了iPadto the public only when it was a completely finished product, two months before it hit stores演示单元我们在媒体上可以访问那一天就像两个月后发给客户的批量生产的iPad一样Can you imagine Apple doing with the iPad what Microsoft is doing with Windows 8? Say, showing a prototype iPad at WWDC in June 2009, running on MacBook Pro-caliber Intel hardware? Letting the public and the press play with the OS in half-finished alpha state on prototype hardware? Impossible even to imagine(当苹果在去年的“回归Mac”活动中展示Mac OS X Lion的“预览”时,没有动手演示,更不用说带回家的原型或开发者下载了。)

我不是在这里通过判断 - 至少还没有 - 关于哪种策略优越我只想引起你的注意力不同两家公司都是。

与任何决定一样,存在权衡取舍对于这些平板电脑来说,Windows 8开发人员肯定会比iOS开发人员为iPad做更多的准备从我在Twitter上可以看出,Windows开发人员和编写者对这种早期访问感到高兴。

Thurrott的推文让我印象深刻的是两家公司吸引了他们应得的作家Me? I’d be appalled if Apple were to unveil something in the half- (if that) finished state of Windows 8 for tablets我喜欢写关于什么是真实的无论演示有多好,我都会对预测成功保持警惕提前一年对抗像iPad这样技术上非常出色且极受欢迎的产品。

Thurrott看到了这个演示并且认为,“这比iPad好得多,游戏结束了。”(而且它是不喜欢Thurrott is alone.) If I were on the Microsoft/Windows beat, I’d look at this and think, “My god, the iPad has been out for 18 months, the second generation is so popular that Apple has only recently been able to keep them in stock, and Microsoft is still an entire year away from releasing its first competing productWho cares if it runs fast on high-power high-performance PC hardware, why can’t we see it on low-power mobile hardware?”

今天看一下Windows-8-on-a-tablet并说它有很大的潜力是一回事完全看待它并宣布胜利是另一回事。

我说,给我看一些真实的东西看看亚马逊每个人都知道他们正在制作平板电脑What have they said, though? NothingWhat have they shown? NothingWhen will they say something? When it’s doneWhat will they show? Something real.

对我而言,这些Windows作家正在做的事情就像一位棒球作家,他今天已经开始撰写可能发生的事情下一个本赛季的季后赛,因为他效力的球队表现糟糕这个季节我们今天“很好”反对“一年可能会好”实际上好的和潜在的好。

以前: 胜利
下一个: 地铁
