Intel Corp. late on Wednesday issued a statement in response to news reports about comments made by Intel chief executive officer Paul Otellini in a meeting with employees. Intel denies that its head criticized Windows 8 operating system and called it half-baked. The chip giant is looking forward release of Windows 8 as it has multiple design wins with PCs running the OS.

"Intel has a long and successful heritage working with Microsoft on the release of Windows platforms, delivering devices that provide exciting experiences, stunning performance, and superior compatibility. Intel fully expects this to continue with Windows 8. Intel, Microsoft and our partners have been working closely together on testing and validation to ensure delivery of a high-quality experience across the nearly 200 Intel-based designs that will start launching in October," the official statement by Intel reads.

Intel needs Windows 8 operating system to sell more of its latest chips, but apparently the OS still needs tweaking so that it could utilize all the benefits it has to offer on hardware available today, a news-agency quoted Intel chief as saying. Paul Otellini reportedly told Intel employees in Taiwan that improvements still needed to be made to Windows 8, but did not reveal whether Intel needs to further tweak its drivers, or the OS itself is not fully baked.

"Windows 8 is one of the best things that ever happened to Intel," citing the importance of the touch interface coming to mainstream computing and the huge wave of exciting new ultrabook, tablet and convertible device innovations coming to the market.

I guarantee internally @ intel someone or a group of employees are getting their asses reamed for causing this PR mess.
