Intel CEO Says Windows 8 Is Not Ready…. WTF?

I thought that Microsoft and Intel were friends. Apparently not. Intel Chief Executive Paul Otellini pretty much tossed Microsoft under the bus by saying to employees in Taiwan that Windows 8 is not ready and full of bugs:

Improvements still need to be made to the software, Otellini told employees at a company meeting in Taipei yesterday, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the meeting was private.

Oh joy. He makes it sound like it’s Windows Vista which was pretty much DOA. You have to believe that when Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer heard that, people dove for cover from the chairs he likely threw. One has to wonder if this is the first sign of cracks in the Intel/Microsoft alliance. After all, Apple is buying a lot of processors from Intel too.
