Looks like there's at least 200 million stupid workers out there...

I'm no Apple fan, but you gotta be very uninformed to WANT a Win8 tablet over an Ipad...

Forbes tested a group of "information people" (ie, IT workers), and then extrapolated that out across the population. It's the most functionally retarded way of gathering data, but sadly people still seem to think it's somehow logically sound. It's why networks keep cancelling TV shows that everyone loves, because those 25000 Nielsen families, all of whom are by now 78000 years old, don't watch it.

Anyway, Forbes asked a lot of IT people whether they wanted iPads or Windows 8 tablets, and most IT workers, if forced to make that decision, will pick Windows 8 tablets, because at least you can integrate those easily with your existing networks, and there's a chance your software will still work, etc. Whereas if they were to switch everyone to iPads, they'd have to start from scratch.

I'm about as far from an Apple fanboy as you can possibly be, and even I know that there's no way in hell that more people want a Windows 8 tablet over an iPad.
