Windows And there we are - the Surface Pro reviews are in. Reading through them all, there's clearly a common theme, and it's not particularly positive. We're a few months in now, so I think we can finally call it: Windows 8 and Surface are the wrong way to go.

OK so when Microsoft allow us to run "legacy" window applications outside of Metro, we complain that the interface is not touch friendly.

On RT where they restrict our ability to install "legacy" apps we complain that they are restricting us.

Do you see the problem here.


Yes, I do see the problem: you either have an actual desktop or you don't (half assed compromise solutions don't cut it) and you should be consistent with your decision to release a primarily touch based device and go full metro there instead of squeezing a limited desktop only because their own apps are not ready.

I mean, the only reason you have a "legacy" desktop on the surfaceRT is because Office completely missed the deadline to go metro-style. Isn't that pathetic?
