Right now, Intel is still having trouble with power management software for the Surface. Windows 8 will be a very, very slow upgrade, especially in the business segment. It's not a really good fit for business anyway.

The upgrade price is very cheap, so I doubt that will provide much in the way of revenue increases.

I can only think that Microsoft hope that most W8 customers will have touchscreens, and not be in the office.
