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.

I haven't read any of the replies to this posting but I'm sure I can sum it up in only a few sentences.

- The MS haters & Linux huggers usual garbage about how MS is a dying/dead company, this new tablet is crap or a rip-off of something else, crying about how it's "locked down", bla bla bla.

- The MS supporters saying how the MS Surface is about to beat the pants off of the competition.

- And the likely minority who actually have a reasonable view... That this new tablet offering looks good so far and has real potential.

We'll see how things unfold for the MS Surface. But I'm sure that won't stop people from getting their panties all in a twist during the process.
