Wrong on Windows

In an item Monday about the consumer preview of Windows 8 I mistakenly said Win 8 on ARM (WOA) would ship at the same time as Win 9 on Intel (WOI?). Since consecutive number keys are so close together, I typed 9 instead of 8. The truth is Microsoft hopes to ship Win 8 on ARM around the same time as Win 8 on WOI, which I think is pretty aggressive.

Thanks to readers Bryan and Thomas for setting me straight!
