Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

Not going to happen, at least for the ARM tablets. Microsoft is locking down the bootloader hard to prevent people from running software they want on the hardware they OWN. I will be shopping elsewhere, no matter how cool or shiny these tablets are otherwise, they are still crippled by the OS.
