Acer founder Stan Shih bashes Microsoft for producing the Surface tablets.
While Americans were shooting off fireworks (or shotguns) in their driveways on Wednesday, Acer founder Stan Shih was firing off comments about Microsoft entering the tablet business first-hand
... again. Apparently he's still not thrilled with the Windows giant entering the hardware sector, and rightfully so: Microsoft essentially has become its chief competitor when it comes to Windows 8-based gadgets.
"I think Microsoft's getting involved in the hardware business is designed to promote its Windows 8 [operating system]," he said, echoing a similar comment made back in June
. "But I sincerely recommend they withdraw from the hardware market when they get what they want."
