Microsoft wants in on the tablet game as well, and the software giant intends to roll out a tablet operating system of their own next year. There will be a public testing of this new version for both partners and customers alike from the end of this year onwards, although those who are involved with the program do not want to be identified since the plans have not yet been released for public consumption. Of course, this might mean an improvement by Microsoft on their successful Windows 7 operating system by throwing more programs which are tailored to touchscreen displays, or will they build it from ground up and really work against the weaknesses of other rivals’ operating systems to have a winner from the get go? It isn’t going to be so easy either, since Microsoft needs to make sure that hardware manufacturers are also willing to take up their cause.
