    Corey,

    You might be interested in reading Paul Thurrott's posting on Windows 8 at:

    I'm still educating myself on the plus and minuses of Win 8.1 Pro (that's the direction I would consider, not RT).

    Corey,

    Lots to think about. One question: Are you talking Windows 8/8 Pro -or- Windows 8 RT?

    Corey,

    After looking at NetMarketShare.com for 4Q-2013
    1) Operating Systems -> Desktop Share by Version
    and
    2) Operating Systems -> Mobile Share by Version

    I can see that Windows 8/8.1 has about 10% of the desktop market and doesn't make much of a blip on mobile.

    From a Computerworld article on IDC's tablet projections for 2014 is the following:
    "Android's market share is expected to drop slightly this year to 60.7% (from 60.8% in 2013), while iOS is expected to drop to 33.1% -- down from 35% in 2013 -- while Windows grows this year to 5.7% from 3.2%."

    So what perplexes me is why you are focusing your time on producing a product that, at best, would have 6% Tablet share and 10% desktop share. Maybe you are trying to future proof IHC. But the demand for a Tablet version is now and the numbers speak for themselves: 60% Android and 30% iOS.

    I really like IHC but, if it doesn't work for me then I'll need to look elsewhere. Right now when I leave my office I carry a Windows laptop - it runs everything I need to handle my support needs (billing, Evernote for information, email, browsing and IHC for Remote Support) from anywhere I go. I also started carrying an android tablet - that is lighter, faster and easier to use - AND gives me everything that my laptop does EXCEPT remote support. At some point soon I will want to stop carrying the laptop as its just too much to carry around, and then I will have to decide how to be able to remotely support my clients!

    Please discuss...

    -Marc Cohen
