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 little computational power advantage it may have on an iPad is quickly gobbled up by virus scanners, crapware, adware and malware.


Not these arguments again.

Windows only has these problems because people willy nilly install crap, the same problem is evident with novice ubuntu wannabes take Remastersys and install every service and application under the sun.

Yeah, dump customers. If they not install anything, not browse the internet and not email there is no problem. Clearly customers fault.

The point being that installing applications by itself doesn't slow Windows down, never had done ... never will.
