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.

It not like Microsoft have monopoly on the arm devices sold...

Dumb question. If I want to get an x86 tablet where I can install anything, I can go to my favorite OEM and get one. If I want an arm machine (tablet please) that I can install anything on, where do I go?

If anything the arm market seems a lot less competitive than the x86 market, but monopoly finger-pointing hasn't kept pace.
