Windows "This may be a good sign for Microsoft: a little over a day after putting its new Surface RT tablet up for pre-order, the entry-level $499 version of the tablet has sold out. Its estimated shipping time has slipped from October 26, Windows 8's release date, to a more nebulous 'within three weeks'." We'll see. Wouldn't be the first time a company artificially keeps supply short to generate 'sold-out' hype.

I was speaking about the premium market.

Windows 8 is the only alternative.


WinCE (not W2k) XP, Vista, W7 tablet share combined: <1%. So, yeah, W8 will conquer.
