Windows "As early as mid-December, consumers will be able to go to retail stores in the United States and Australia to purchase a Surface with Windows RT. Additional availability will be added in a number of countries in the coming months." Sales might indeed benefit from, you know, allowing the world to actually buy your halo product. Us Dutch won't be getting the Nexus 4 and 10 either.

Hate to be Tech Support for that store

I would really hate to be tech support for the store that sells Surface RT. I actually have no problem with Surface RT other than I think it would have been better without including the desktop at all, but have a problem with Windows 8 on anything over 13 inches.

The problem is the customer will purchase a Surface RT and not understand why their applications won't install or run. "But I installed Chrome on my desktop running Windows 8 and it runs just fine." "Yes but that isn't the same Windows" "But they look the same and they both have a desktop" "Yes but this is different..."
