Heh. Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols is making the *exact* same speculation that I just did:

Good. Maybe I'll get my damn start menu back after all.


Apparently there IS a way for you to get your start menu back.

Accoring to this guy, you can't kill a Surface even by running it over with a car.

Hehe...

Well, I find Win8 too cutesy to be effective, anyway, so blending it would be fine with me!  :-)

Linux mint 14 is released. Its so refreshing to see something like this after
the abomination that is Windows 8.

Microsoft Mistakenly Giving Away Windows 8 Pro for Free

The funny thing is, even at that price it's still not worth it.

I'll take it for free as long as it comes installed on a free computer that I can reload with some other operating system :)

The "Exchange or Compatible Service" that Microsoft has in Outlook 2013 is because they're pushing Office 365. Hard. My office is full of their kool-aid.

Because they realised that their Office product isn't that innovativ anymore and people can stick with OfficeXP for about 12 years....

Or they still use Office2003.

Personally, I find it a bit too expensive and I still think global economy will be boosted greatly if companies stop wasting money on Outllook maintenance...

Heh. :) It's about time the world realized that an office suite is a commodity and should be treated like one. With the barriers to document format import finally coming down, it's easy to switch. Microsoft realizes this which is why they're trying to move everything to SaaS as fast as they can.

Google sorta has them beat, though. I don't know if you've tried to use Google's online word processor, but it isn't bad.

Yeesh. Three whole days of migrating a company from its old Exchange world to a new one. With every release, Exchange gets more byzantine with lots of new ways it can break.

And it isn't just cheap talk when I say "I could write a better mail system in my spare time" -- because I actually have. :)

Yes, yes you have...

combining theese two articles:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/01/18/7_reasons_windows_rt_was_doa/

undermines my opinion, that while hunting down the netbook market (which according to the second with the last two Asus & Acer exiting ceised to exist) microsoft missed the next big things...

and I like the analysis that windowsRT and the keyboard tablet they do sort of is their vision of a netbook...  and... its the double price.

Bottom line: nobody wants Microsoft's mobile products. RT is a non-starter, and the Intel-based tablets with keyboard docks are really just laptops. So there's nothing new now: Microsoft is still chained to its Intel legacy, and the big new world of ARM is for Google and Apple.

I would actually likely be somewhat interested in the RT version of the surface if the OS didn't suck and it wasn't overpriced, the laptops version's battery life isn't good enough and it's in the wrong market.  The real issue I have with the surface is the default keyboard looks like it's terrible.  I've never touched one, but mentally it brings images of the keyboard on the ZX81, though I know there's no way it's nearly that bad.  I just don't expect it to be tollerable.

Don't knock the ZX81 like that :-)

I have laid hands upon the Surface RT keyboard. It really is that awful.
To call them chiclet keys would actually be grotesquely generous. It's barely above a membrane keyboard.
