    Acer chairman and chief executive J.T. Wang, seems to fancy himself an old-school style mob-boss, if his latest statements are considered. He recently had some strong words to say to Microsoft in regards to the Surface Tablet. Here's a quote with the details,

    It makes sense that these old-world PC manufacturers would look at things like this. The formula for success for the longest time has always been that Microsoft makes the software, Intel makes the CPU, and the OEMs, like Acer, Dell, & HP put the hardware together for a profitable product. Unfortunately, that paradigm has shifted because of the disruptive nature of the new tech that is changing the world, namely tablets (and especially the iPad). Microsoft has seen the writing on the wall on this one, but the old OEMs seem to be holding on too tight to the old ways. They have forgotten the first credo in business... "adapt or die."

    On the other hand Lenovo apparently has no problem with Microsoft and is planning on releasing the ThinkPad Tablet 2 a Windows 8 Pro tablet which will be available as 3G or LTE on AT&T or as a wifi only model. It is set to be released in October when Windows 8 is released. Guess who is going to be in better shape when it comes to selling Windows tablets Lenovo who is making and releasing products to compete with Miscrosoft hardware or Acer who sits back and cries that everything is ruined?
