Dell Inc. (DELL) & Microsoft Corporation (MSFT): A Good Team

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) continues to take steps forward towards the release of Windows 8.1. Yesterday we discussed that the company has started the release of Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 to its hardware partners.

In addition to Microsoft itself, there are two groups of people excited about this.

On one side of things, you have the consumers who were not thrilled with what Windows 8 has to offer. They were begging and pleading for an update, and that is exactly what they are getting.

Then you have the hardware partners. These are the companies that will be relying on Windows 8.1 to help them sell more units in the months to come.

One such partner is Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL), a computer giant that is optimistic about what Windows 8.1 for enterprise PCs.

That is some heavy praise for Windows 8.1. So heavy that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) better hope it got things right this time around.

Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) has many plans for getting involved, including the release of several Windows tables in the second half of the year.
