Windows "According to an inside source, a session was held at Microsoft's recent TechReady15 conference in which all the launch details were laid out. If things go according to the plan detailed then, the Surface for Windows RT tablet will be launching October 26th - no surprise there - at a compelling price of $199." My wallet just squealed in pure bliss.

Maybe it would be dumb, but why would MS think it not so, why is Win 8 on the desktop hung on whatever Metro is being called today and why is Win 8 priced so cheaply as an upgrade?

Might even upgrade myself, now I've figured how to only see 'Metro' fleetingly and have a start button back (if not quite perfectly)

Fear of future profitability and losing control over whatever the market will be for computer devices now its no longer limited to PC's. If I was MS, I'd bear any burden, pay any price...

Not sure it'll work but then I think Apple is in just as much danger, if not more so, in the medium term unless they come up with yet another whizz cash cow, have my doubts.....hence absurd patent legal trials
