markie_farkie: How long before Ballmer gets his ass handed to him and is shown the door?

My money's on this fall

As a Win developer, I'd love to see him be fired.

Out of a cannon.

Into the sun.

scanman61: But will they have the $99 blowout sale like HP's Touchpads?  It would be fun to see another frenzy like that.

Those were worth it at $99, though. The RT tablets aren't worth it at anything less than free. With a puppy. And a gift card. And a trash bag to put it in so I don't have to use my own.

/ I would seriously consider buying a Surface Pro were it discounted to around $199 though
// the tablet goes in the trash bag... not the puppy

People, people, I think you're all missing the real point here!

The real point is that Apple is moving up in the world! They finally topped Windows Vista!

Break out the champagne!

As someone who has been lucky enough to score two BOC's, I'm getting a kick.

2wolves: Publikwerks: unlikely: Don't be absurd.

Woot doesn't do the "Bag of Crap" anymore.

I do miss them, but woot has lost it's charm since being bought.

Its charm and my business. Hope the founders do another startup.

Sadly this. Used to buy all sorts of crap on there. From literally dozens of those frickin flying monkeys up to a video projector. But I haven't bought much more than a shirt or two since the changeover.

pkellmey: I just can't explain the business philosophy of releasing a full OS with full capabilities and hybrids/laptops that can use it, and then a half-hearted disabled version on less than capable hardware later and expect anyone to be interested.

Because clearly when you're trying to consolidate desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablets and phones under one Windows 8 in order to unify apps that run on all the devices you're supposed to make multiple editions of Windows 8 that are incompatible and can't run apps between the multiple editions.

I mean, duh, obvious.
