Microsoft The Verge, reporting that Microsoft lost almost a billion dollars with Surface RT, in this quarter alone. "At the end of the day, though, it looks like Microsoft just made too many Surface RT tablets - we heard late last year that Microsoft was building three to five million Surface RT tablets in the fourth quarter, and we also heard that Microsoft had only sold about one million of those tablets in March." That's catastrophically bad.

I would have paid $99 in a fire sale for one, except that (I believe?) the boot loader is encrypted to prevent Linux from loading on it. Looks like a sweet target for an Ubuntu or Plasma Active port, too. Oh, well.
