Gates gives thumbs up to Surface

Written by Nick Farrell



Windows 8 will kill the PC


Software king of the world, Sir William Gates III said that Microsoft has done the right thing trying to create its own Windows 8-powered Surface tablet. He said that Windows 8 is going to kill the traditional PC. Whoa.

Talking to Charlie Rose Gates talked about Microsoft's decision to make its own tablet again. Gates said that he believed that you can make your own tablet without causing your partners much harm.

"You can have a rich eco-system of manufacturers and you can have a few signature devices that show off,” he said.

Google is taking the same route with its Nexus 7 tablet and the other "Google Experience" tablets planned in the near future.  Gates' admitted that Windows 8 tablets will replace the traditional PCs.  After all he has been saying that long before Steve Jobs had the “brilliant idea” to copy Microsoft and present the idea as his own.

"You can get everything you like about a tablet, everything you like about a PC, all in one device. That should change the way people look at things," he said.
