“This is an absolutely critical that takes Windows to the world of the tactile, low-power devices, actually getting the best experience on a tablet and PC. It’s a great improvement for regular Windows users, but the idea of a store, the rich user interface, is a big step. Key is where personal computers are, “he said.

He also referred to the convergence between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. “It is evolving into a single platform. For the user it is easy to move from one place to another, “he said.
