“The global PC industry is steadily shrinking despite the launch of Windows 8,” Jun said. “I think the Windows 8 system is no better than the previous Windows Vista platform.”
That isn't even the most damning quote in the article. Samsung went further to bash Microsoft's Surface effort and referred to the Windows 8 platform as being "less-competitive".
Considering this news in addition to Samsung's situation with Google over Android, it seems as though Samsung is flexing its (rapidly growing) muscle in the industry.
