Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

Can it run Linux?

Seriously, I'm impressed, but I like the option to install a second operating system, just for in case.

Also, the question "but can it run XYZ" is important because I like to have control / freedom with the hardware I buy.

And buying this beauty is definitly something I would consider.

Probebly I would also like the Metro UI on a device like this.
