Windows "I've been writing about Windows for almost 20 years, and I feel like I've kind of seen it all. But for the past several days, I've been struggling under the weight of the most brutal email onslaught I've ever endured over these two decades. And if my email is any indication, and I believe it is, the majority of people out there have absolutely no idea what Windows RT is. This is a problem." When even Paul Thurrot is worried, you can be sure it is, actually, a problem. We're going to see and hear about a lot of frustrated customer who can't load up their 1997 copy of Awesome Garden Designer 2.0 Deluxe.

Actually betting on a MS failure in mobile computing, is almost always a safe bet.

What they really need to do, is completely divorce the mobile from Windows, rebrand it and launch it as something completely new.

Geeks have their reasons for disliking it, but the average people will think "wait, windows? that's what I have on my PC, I get viruses all the time, needs a lot of work to maintain" etc etc etc.
