Windows Well, this can't be a good sign. Samsung has told CNET that the company will not be launching its Windows RT tablet in the United States, citing a lack of demand and consumer confusion. After I spent an afternoon in my country's largest electronics retailer, it's hard not to agree with Samsung.

It sounds like Microsoft is getting a well-deserved backlash for their lock-down/WinRT/Metro tactics. It's nice to see them on the receiving end for a change, instead of smothering all competition with their market presence and weight alone. The only problem is... their main competition (Apple, Android) is just as locked down... but if Windows keeps holding traditional x86 machines by the balls and Android continues to dominate tablets and ARM systems, then at least theoretically we should benefit from one not growing too much stronger than the other.
