Michael Dell restated his support for Microsoft’s new Operating System today in an appearance on American Financial TV station CNBC.
Dell was asked about Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) success with smart phones and tablets. With Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows 8 coming out, Dell was asked if the company can see profitable growth in the consumer segment or just manage the situation?
Dell retorted that the consumer segment is only $250 billion while the commericial sector is $2.75 trillion. Dell stated that the company was excited for Windows 8, and “will be right there” with the Windows 8 announcement.
Dell, like other PC manufacturers have expressed substantial interest in Windows 8 and seem to be waiting for this release eagerly.
