Windows Ever since the successful development and launch of Windows 7, Microsoft has become ever tighter-lipped about Windows development. Sure, it dropped the bomb about releasing Windows 8 for ARM, but that's it. Nothing on features or timetables (other than 'three years after Windows 7'). Well, the usually well-connected (inside Microsoft, that is) Mary-Jo Foley now claims to have a legit development roadmap - and it seems everything is on track for a Windows 8 beta in September 2011.

Does that invalidate the original point; that many outside the gadgetgeek/cultofmac categories are buying Ipads in noticable numbers?


Yes it does. There's a difference between "billions" and "a few millions". I'm not saying all iPad buyers are all geeks/tecnophiles, but it is possible that a big percentage of those buyers are in fact geeks/tecnophiles. If only about 0.1% of the world population were geeks, that would make it possible (if unlikely). I think there are much more than that. And for what I've seen, I think that it is true: very few (comparatively) "average joes" own an iPad.
