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.

The value is Office.


Which is absolute non-sense. No sane person in this world will ever write anything longer than two paragraphs on a tablet.

It's like browsing the internet with your television using the supplied remote without a fully-sized keyboard. Yes, it works, but it is utterly unpractical.

Microsoft had to cut down orders for the Surface from 4 million to 2 million orders, they sold only 700.000 units and Windows 8 doesn't even show in the stats of Global Stat Counter.

Yet there are people who think that Windows 8 is a successful design.

If I were Microsoft, I'd have a look at companies like digital, Commodore or even now Sony who also thought it's a sensible decision to ignore your customers.
