Windows And there we are - the Surface Pro reviews are in. Reading through them all, there's clearly a common theme, and it's not particularly positive. We're a few months in now, so I think we can finally call it: Windows 8 and Surface are the wrong way to go.

The problem is that tech journalists need to create drama so that people read their articles. Negativity and hyperbole gets clicks, clicks = money.


Then why wasn't he negative about Windows Phone?

I have a Windows Phone and I think Windows 8 is crap and Surface is a joke.

If you look at Amazon user reviews you'll see similar sentiment. Windows Phone reviews are positive while Windows 8 reviews are a mix of hatred and pathetic defenses from apologists.

The excuses for the Sinofsky Windows 8 / Surface plan don't add up and this was true a year ago.

It's a dumb plan. It's just a damn dumb plan and it isn't going anywhere just like most of us predicted on Sinofsky's blog. Trying to compete with the iPad by forcing a mobile interface on desktop users to create an ecosystem was FREAKING STUPID and we haven't even seen the full ramifications of this idiocy. Windows 8 defenders get off Ballmer's short bus while you can.
