Windows "The Surface is a nice tablet. The design and aesthetic are pleasing, the feel in the hands, particularly of the kickstand and magnetic cover connection is excellent. But is it worth buying on the day of release?" After these three reviews, I still want a Surface RT. As much as I think Metro - and especially its applications - has a long way to go, I feel like I should reward the fact that Microsoft dares to be different. Too bad Microsoft doesn't want me to buy one.

I wouldn't mind having one myself to use metro as it was meant to be used, on a *real* tablet. But in the end I know I'd be frustrated by the restrictions imposed on my device and not being able to run the software I wrote and being able to distribute it to friends & colleagues without microsoft's approval. I really hate that a walled garden overshadows the platform, since otherwise I'd be able to get behind it as an alternative to the apple walled garden. They can paint it any color they want, but it's always going to stink.
