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.

They shouldn't have diversified that much in such a short time. Microsoft has:

-Windows Desktop
-Windows Modern x86
-Windows Modern ARM
-Windows Phone

All incompatible between them.

Apple Has:


Google Has:

-Chrome Store/OS

I'm also surprised they killed C# at this point. While it's true that most developers of large apps or games prefer C++, they would have been able to have many of the apps work everywhere.
