Claiming that the iPad is marginalized in the Enterprise is a bit of a stretch. However, I think there is a place for a muscular Win8 Pro tablet (ala Surface Pro). All of the support arguments tend to become more relevant the further away from the executive and sales suites you go in the Enterprise.

I think Windows 8 Tablets have a huge potential for the enterprise market. Right now there's lots of buzz around Windows 9. I wonder how it will look like.

M$ can bribe the Corporate execs who make buying decisions. M$ looks like bribed the AICTE body in India to force all AOCTE approved colleges to opt for Office365 (forcibly) ... this means that once the students move out they are hooked to M$ dope so whenever they become powerful to influence buying decisions they would vote for M$ ...

The previous post as it deals with being locked into an ecosystem is just blatantly false. It's also no different than what apple and google are doing. Not that it makes it right. But anyone can switch at any time.
That being said, I see win8 tabs as a huge potential in enterprise. Apple has never made a serious attempt at partnering with enterprise IT. It's always taken the approach that IT should bow to apple. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.
