Windows Tom Warren: "While Intel is trying to keep the Windows tree healthy, Microsoft is hoping that the leaves don't start to drop off before its own family of Surface devices are fully ready. Redmond isn't 'priming the pump' here, it's planting seeds for the future. If Microsoft is successful then it could be the world's biggest Windows OEM in just a few years. The future is Surface." You just have to look at the difference in build quality and supplied software between OEM devices and Surface even though Surface is cheaper to realise that the age of Windows OEMs is coming to an end. The writing's on the wall, and the OEMs know it: there's no future for them in Windows.

Like Vista. Perhaps we are to consider Microsoft now - I forget which, maybe MS 'service packs', where odd/even was the broken/reliable.

Windows 8 my data!

In a vain attempt to nebulize it.

Cloud computing may be blades talking on a nim-bus.
