I went to the doctor's office today, a very large, national institution. Their computers were running [wait for it] Windows XP. Wha?! I said nothing because I don't like hot doctor assistants identifying me as a nerd. (What? Everybody wants some!) Anyways, if 7 wasn't enough to get their IT off XP then it must be 8. At some point their systems will stop talking to their equipment and mobile devices. They are going to be using wireless tablets and similar stuff and XP will become their bottleneck. If Windows 8, and a similar looking 9, gets adopted by hardware makers this giant hospital will have to make the jump just to stay functional. Plus, doctors don't like to type and pushing tiles or looking at tiles that give them specific information without even opening an application would be a welcomed feature.
Instead of rough-handing a mouse, their sexy little hot assistant hands can just point at tiles to do stuff. Hot chicks pointing and touching - I'll buy that for a dollar!
