re: Microsoft Windows 8 Surface Tablets: Big Hardware Play
Bad move - hardware providers won't like it. This is an invitation for Android and Ubuntu to take over step by step. And I am doubting that the Surface will provide the same user experience like an iPAD, which is the direct competitor and still the standard in the market. Microsoft may need many years to catch-up with Apple or may never be capable to do so. 10 years of mismanagement have ended the dominance of Microsoft. This seems to me to be an act of desperation. We will see if the Surface will go the way of the Zune or Xbox. But if this sinful step is done now Microsoft can also buy Nokia.
