Microsoft One of the major lacking features in the newest Office: no Metro applications. In fact, the only reason Windows RT has a desktop at all is because the Office team was unable to create Metro applications in time for the release of Windows RT. I often thought this was a classic case of two important divisions within Microsoft not getting along and not being aligned, but now that I have my own Surface RT, I'm starting to realise that there's a far simpler, and thus more likely, explanation: Metro is simply not ready for anything serious - or for anything at all, really.

Here Thom is comparing Microsoft Surface, which most people have no experience with, with beta versions of OS X, which most people have no experience with and they're over a decade old.

Thom made a comparison, based on his personal opinion, between a new operating system and an old operating system.

You do remember that this website is for operating system enthusiasts, right?
