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[3]: RT is an OEM version

There can be all sorts of ideals in FOSS.

For example, the BSD folks accept that their code is reused in commercial software. Linux is in GPLv2 instead of GPLv3 as Linus never rejected "Tivoisation"...

There is some work to merge parts of the android patches back into the main kernel tree but, at the end, even forks respect the open source ideals.

Stallman himself had to accept that during the Emacs vs XEmacs war.
