Windows "The problem with Microsoft's latest approach is that the company is gambling on consumers seeing past the Office confusion, and betting that PC makers will start creating high-quality devices. Unlike the netbook era, there's a huge choice of tablets these days. If time has taught us anything, it's that confused consumers will go elsewhere."

I don't see any anecdotes in the article which are cited in support of the idea that different editions of Office on different size tablets cause confusion. Rather, the author uses arguments from common sense.

And confusion does indeed abound on Windows RT. When Samsung executives justified not launching Ativ tablets in North America, citing weak demand and customer confusion, certainly they were not basing this decision on anecdotes.
