Windows Well, this can't be a good sign. Samsung has told CNET that the company will not be launching its Windows RT tablet in the United States, citing a lack of demand and consumer confusion. After I spent an afternoon in my country's largest electronics retailer, it's hard not to agree with Samsung.

Uh no it's like comparing trucks to trains.

They can't do the same work. Software is not cpu independent so they can only be compared for specific cases. Price is relative to use, not between the two. Or can I save myself some money by tossing my Intel chips in the garbage and running all my software on ARM?

If you're building a tablet or a phone, yes. Which was the entire point.
