There are many naysayers when it comes to Microsofts Windows RT but it seems Nvidias CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, is definitely not among them.
According to ZDnet, Huang had some very nice words to say about Microsofts efforts in this space. Even though the lesser version of Windows 8 has yet to take off in any major way, nVidias CEO is looking towards the future and according to him, Microsofts efforts in this space will result in "a wonderful PC". Now you may point out that Huang is clearly biased as the Surface RT tablet is powered by a Tegra device, however, he also talked about Android and only mentioned Microsoft as an important player, not necessarily the winner in this competition.
His full comments, following Nvidias Q4 earnings report:
I believe in tablets wholeheartedly. And its an area, its a segment of the marketplace that we are going to continue to invest in and be quite successful in. Win RT -- I believe it is essential, strategically essential for Microsoft to be on all of the major processors in the world, surely the highest volume processor in the world, as a software company, and an operating system company. Its a market they cant afford to ignore. And so, Win RT is surely going to be an important area for them.
Now, whether people see Win RT as a consumer tablet or as a PC is yet to be determined. But at the very minimum, if you extrapolate it forward by a few years, its hard to imagine how Win RT cant possibly, wont possibly be a wonderful PC. We know exactly what it feels like on top of a Tegra 4, and it rocks. Its fantastic. And so, Win RT I think will be successful as well. Microsoft will have no choice but to continue to invest in it, and its a great company. They will do something great with it.
Its definitely interesting to see so much optimism for Microsofts products but then again how could he have said anything differently?
