Intel (INTC) issues a PR declaring yesterday's Bloomberg report about remarks made by CEO Paul Otellini to employees in Taiwan "unsubstantiated." Otellini was said to have told employees Windows 8 (MSFT) is buggy and being released before it's ready.

    This rumor sounds believable. MSFT releasing buggy SW? Never happened before...

    Ottelini is way too high class a man to make negative comments about Microsoft....or any company for that matter.

    Come on: What new released program is not somewhat buggy?

     

    Get a legit one... and you get patches! And Microsoft is very reliable for that, as far as I know.

    You have choices:
    Linux
    Android
    iOS from Apple

     

    So stop complaining. And select another. Most land up selecting one of the many Microsoft's operating systems anyway. Pay for one and it comes with updates.

    I can't beleive that media can just say anything these days.

     

    I heard Tim cook eats babies...... Appl stock plummets. Not sure who to blame, those who publish unsubtantiated reports or those who beleive them.

    There has never been a software product released that is bug free. Windows 8 has bugs so does every other available OS. Most software companies are very good to fix critical bugs quickly. Try to ship a bug free product and you will never release.

    People who complain about Microsoft software have never really had to work with really bad software. I can point to a dozen examples. Even worse some of it is really expensive. Like $1500/month license fee. Windows has to work on an incredible range of hardware. All kinds of combinations of processors, mother boards, video cards, sound cards, hard drives, optical drives, etc. It's a wonder it works as well as it does. Since Apple controls the hardward and the software, they have a lesser challenge.

    In our commentary I encourage readers to refer to the software enhancement process as "improvements" suggested by users after its release. It will be a platform that is continuously updated and most modern in its performance and appeal. The most interesting development I saw yesterday is that PC manufacturers are offering a free upgrade to Windows 8 with a current purchase. Today would be a good day to buy a new PC to avoid the crowds, along with some more INTC stock.

    Anything with the name "Bloomberg" associated with it probably has little or no credibility in any event.
