Windows "There may be a time in the future when all the bugs have been fixed, the third-party app support has arrived, and some very smart engineers in Redmond have ironed out the physical kinks in this type of product which prevent it from being all that it can be. But that time isn't right now - and unfortunately for Microsoft, the clock is ticking." The Verge's review is not so positive, because they focus on what Surface is now.

It do not matter for customers buying NOW.

Come one if you do review you do it to help others decide, what to do NOW. It would be unfair for Verge to do otherwise.

And as usual pre-release app market grow IS PURE PR.

Entity control ALL FACTORS that could cause for such growth. Eg. they could on purpose add apps to shop just before launch to create "high" rate just before launch.

Give me stats from 6 months and we will talk ;)

PS Know 3 people from my Technical University who submitted GARBAGE APPS (their words! not main) just because there where Lumias to win for 5 submitted apps. I'm FAR from saying that it means that all apps for WinP7 where garbage-like quality*, but it prove that shop owners can influence number of apps in a way that do not benefit customers.

* I always LMAO at those ignorants who claimed that lower number meant that THEIR shop is full of quality apps while other bigger are full of crap. Whether they where iOS users (yes not always iOS had biggest app store out there ;P), Android users, WinP users, etc. That is all psychological bulshit.

Learn2EN (dunno, pay more attention during EN classes at your uni or smth), you're embarrassing PL (generally, there's more about EN than substituting - in sentences written with a grammar "intermediate" between the two languages - PL words for English ones that are suggested by auto-correct...)
