Acer founder recommends Microsoft to stick to software

Posted on Friday, July 06 2012 @ 14:45:45 CEST by

Acer founder Stan Shih issued a warning to Microsoft that it better sticks to software, because getting involded in the hardware business would have a negatice impact on its OEM partners:
“I think Microsoft's getting involved in the hardware business is designed to promote its Win8 OS. But I sincerely recommend they withdraw from the hardware market when they get what they want,” Shih said.

Contrary to Shih’s belief that Microsoft’s entrance into the hardware market will hurt OEMs, Bill Gates believes that OEMs and Microsoft can share an eco-system. Gates wants the Surface to eliminate boundaries between PCs and tablets.

The PC market has slowed down in recent years due to increasing consumer interests in tablets. Shih believes, however, that laptop PCs can remain competitive in the personal computing sector—specifically for students.
