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 really don't understand why so many people "need" office. Free alternatives have been out there for years, and for what most people use it for it's good enough.

Obviously you've never tried to share documents between Office alternatives and genuine Office. If you did, you'd not say these things. Even different versions of Office don't share that well between one another. It's actually quite pathetic.
