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.

You do realise that anti-trust laws actually cover cross market actions.

Also, computing landscape is not a market. Come back when there is no massive disincentive for PC manufacturers of releasing computers without an OS.

Though it does not necessarily mean that Microsoft will act in an anti-competitive manner.
