Air France Boss: “Windows 8 is Disappointing”
Is Lalanne aware of its Free Poker Games
The Windows 8 operating system is steadily rising in France. According to the May 2013 Operating Systems Barometer by the online intelligence solution provider AT Internet, the country famous for Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Chanel recorded the highest visit share for Windows 8 during the fifth month of the year. This latest data puts France at the top of the list of European countries that utilize the Microsoft operating system. However, this improvement might be derailed because of a statement by Air France CEO Jean-Christophe Lalanne.
During an interview with IT news and analysis site Computing at the 2013 Air Transport IT Summit in Brussels, Lalanne said that Windows 8 is nowhere near the brilliant features of iPads, citing the OS’s lack of applications.
“We think that for the existing applications that are running on Windows 7, it could be interesting to think about refurbishing them for Windows 8,” he said.
“It should be easy with the adaptable design mode to use with tablets, but at the same time using the tablets as if they were classical desktops. So the new platform where the screen becomes the tablet surface, could be very interesting for us.”
If Lalanne was relating Windows 8 features to his business, then his concerns are valid because the Microsoft OS isn’t really developed for industrial applications. But from a gamer’s perspective who is into poker games, this wouldn’t be the case.
One of the top features of Windows 8 is the free-to-play (F2P0 World Series of Poker: Full House Pro, a game added to the OS at the start of the year. This title, which has some resemblance to the games offered at Partypoker, was installed in the Windows 8 to boost PC sales. WSOP: Full House Pro is one of the things that you will love the most from Windows 8. With this game, you have instant access to a high quality poker game – without the need for downloads. The game has many redeeming features. Among these are the F2P-jump in that lets you play with real people online, a daily stack of chips to let you challenge players at any level, and a variety of games (e.g. single-player mode, single-table games, and full-blown tournaments) that will definitely suit your style of play. It also comes with specialty games that include eight head-to-head Pro Takedowns, and an All-in Pro Takedown. Each mode also has ESPN announcers Lon McEachern and Norman Chad that make you feel like you are in an authentic WSOP game.
Lalanne should play Windows 8’s WSOP: Full House Pro to realize how different it is from iOS devices. WSOP is one of the top games on the Windows 8 platform. It’s free, exciting, and as real as the professional poker contests.
