Yesterday there was a rumor that Intel CEO Paul Otellini had told employees that Microsoft are releasing Windows 8 before their new OS was finished, and now Intel has denied the claims that their CEO had said that Windows 8 was not ready for release.
Intel has now released an official press release denying the claims, with a quote from their CEO on how good Windows 8 is for Intel.
Intel has a long and successful heritage working with Microsoft on the release of Windows platforms, delivering devices that provide exciting experiences, stunning performance, and superior compatibility. Intel fully expects this to continue with Windows 8.
Intel, Microsoft and our partners have been working closely together on testing and validation to ensure delivery of a high-quality experience across the nearly 200 Intel-based designs that will start launching in October. Intel CEO Paul Otellini is on record as saying “Windows 8 is one of the best things that ever happened to Intel,” citing the importance of the touch interface coming to mainstream computing and the huge wave of exciting new Ultrabook™, tablet and convertible device innovations coming to the market.
So there we have it, according to Intel their CEO never said that Microsoft was shipping Windows 8 before it was ready for release.
