Windows "As early as mid-December, consumers will be able to go to retail stores in the United States and Australia to purchase a Surface with Windows RT. Additional availability will be added in a number of countries in the coming months." Sales might indeed benefit from, you know, allowing the world to actually buy your halo product. Us Dutch won't be getting the Nexus 4 and 10 either.

I've heard people dish on Windows 8/RT for this reason, and they contrast it with Apple's smooth transition from PPC to x86 back in 2005.
The difference is that Apple invested the time and money in building a universal binary system.

That's a bit unfair. The difference is more nuanced... PPC->x86 of Apple was within the same kind of devices (PPC desktops & laptops -> x86 desktops and laptops). The universal binaries don't encompass Apple mobile devices.

And that's the jump MS is doing, desktops & laptops -> mobile.
