“Although we don’t like Microsoft providing hardware, for us, it just adds one more competitor,” Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing said during the conference call in response to analyst’s question.
“[They’re] just one of our many competitors. We are still confident that we are providing much better hardware than our competitors including Microsoft,” he said.
So Acer just complains and threatens to move to competing operating systems (which don’t really exist) and Lenovo says “We don’t like it but we’re going to build better stuff than them anyway”.
I’m sure we can see which company is run by adults and which is run by petulant children.
