Is this a surprise?
Microsoft has pretty much f*cked up every consumer product it's ever launched. Zune, Windows Phone, Kin, etc...

And it isn't because of price or Tech issues, it's because of stupid marketing decisions that confuse and frustrate their customers.  (we can also talk about the TV adverts).

This is a company that decided to market home, media, home server, business, small business, enterprise and professional versions of their flagship operating system and application suite. This is a company that has to offer a course on how to understand their business licensing issues.

So now you have Microsoft making a tablet with the Windows RT OS, so that should work pretty well with windows. I mean it's right there in the farking Name. And it doesn't, if you want closer to a windows experience you need to pony up an extra $600, you can get two (if not 3) nice laptops for $1200.

You say price isn't the reason then talk about the price of the tablet. Maybe price is a huge factor.

And yet Apple and Samsung can move units at that price.


The problem isn't price, it's value. WinRT just isn't worth it.

You're an idiot because Windows 8 works for you and it doesn't for me. You don't understand. Everybody says it sucks and everyone who uses it and says it doesn't suck is a jerk because they are always trying call me stupid like you are. I'm not stupid. So don't call me it. I got all these numbers and articles backing me on how much it sucks and I don't care if it works for you because these people don't lie. It's not worth it. Mouse doesn't work in Metro. Two internet explorers. Can't use the start key. Can't turn my computer off. Thanks, Bill Gates. Do you work for Microsoft?

Bill Gates had nothing to do with Windows 8.  You should blame Steve Ballmer.

My mouse works fine with Metro, Start key gets you back to desktop, not having start bar is an issue.  The 2 IE versions is a bit stupid but it's not that big of a deal.  I turn mine off all the time so you must be a bit stupid if you can't figure out any of those things.  It took maybe 10 min of playing with it to get the gist of Windows 8.   No I don't work for MS, I'm just smart enough to figure things out instand of throwing my hands into the air and complaining.  I bet you hated Vista too.
