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.

Well, the benefit of rootkits is that they tend to go undetected. You can have adware/spyware running, and a hacked kernel can make the associated processes completely invisible to everything else. Or, the hacked kernel can be designed to trick anti-virus software into thinking viruses were properly and correctly removed when they weren't.
