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.

RE[2]: RT is an OEM version

Linux has won in every catagory except desktop/laptop and tablet.

Linux LOST in the mobile phone category. Android is not Linux, it's an abomination of the ideals of FOSS.

The phone isn't fully open, is incompatible with the mainland kernel, and drivers aren't benefiting Linux as a whole.

Unless you count a black box of proprietary hardware and binary blobs as a "Win"
