The world of Wintel - Microsoft, Intel and the Taiwan-based companies that build the computers their products power and run on - is taking a huge collective bet on Windows 8.

And while last week's Computex trade show in Taiwan largely presented a united front, it has also highlighted some of the tensions that big gamble has created in a once tight relationship between the US firms and their Asian partners.
