Submission + - Windows 8: Do I Really Need A Single OS? (informationweek.com)

gManZboy writes: "If you skip Windows 8, you lose the appealing opportunity to synchronize all of your devices on a single platform--or so goes the argument. If you're skeptical, you're not alone.

OS monogamy may be in Apple's interest, and Microsoft's, but ask why it's in your interest. Can Microsoft convince the skeptics? "If the hardware and software are the same at home and at work, one can't be "better" than the other. It would help if Microsoft convinced users like me that their platform is so good, we'd be fools to go anywhere else," writes Kevin Casey."
