Neowin had a chance to sit down with Robert Scoble to talk about Microsoft, Windows 8 and the new direction of the company. Robert, who is articulate with the movements of the industry has one vantage point, and I, presented Microsoft's side of the equation.
The conversation was highly enlightening for both parties as we each have a different vantage point for what is going on and how Microsoft will proceed with its platforms. Robert certainly had several strong key arguments about Apple and Microsoft being late and I refuted with Microsoft's direction and big vision about how Windows 8 is a long term play
We both walked away with a new sense of how the industry is evolving but understood that in 18 months, Microsoft will be in an entirely different position in the marketplace with Windows 8 and Windows Phone.
