Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

How can consumers get an Xbox 360 for free moron? You can't pirate a 360. Consumers can pirate windows though.

As for their desktops, consumers really have no choice but to buy a desktop with windows pre-installed. Because ms forces consumers to use windows (through their oem deals with hardware manufacturers) they are really doing a disservice to the public because there is millions of consumers who despise windows. Not only that, windows is used in many government institutions such as public schools, so taxpayers are indirectly paying for windows and microsoft services.

As for the android, ms never had a monopoly in embedded systems you moron. They have a monopoly in the PC desktop, please think before you post loser.
