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.

Are you referring to that Android / Ubuntu thing that they demo'd a while ago?

If so I doubt it will come to this. They are sitting on the source, it isn't public. They're waiting for a manufacturer, so it'll undoubtedly be a big fail.

People have powerful phones now. People have powerful tablets now. No reason not to let us install Ubuntu alongside Android now.
