Older Windows programs will have to be updated to incorporate touch capabilities, Qualcomm’s chief executive said. And that’s something that should help adoption of the newest version of the operating system.
Paul Jacobs, speaking today during a small press roundtable in New York before tomorrow’s Windows 8 launch, said there will be “FUD” — fear, uncertainty, and doubt — around legacy applications when Windows RT first launches, but the capabilities offered by the new system will ultimately win over consumers.
