Intel Corp. (INTC) Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini told employees in Taiwan that Microsoft Corp.ís Windows 8 operating system is being released before itís fully ready, a person who attended the company event said.
Microsoft is eager to get Windows 8, the first version of its flagship software designed for touch tablets, into computers next month to help it vie with Apple Inc.ís iPad during the holiday shopping season. Releasing the operating system before itís fully baked is the right move, and Microsoft can make improvements after it ships, Otellini told staffers.
