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.

How many people would make Metro apps if Microsoft hadn't force fed Metro on desktops and laptop users? Not many. Everyone would keep targeting iPad and Android tablets. Now that they force-fed Metro on desktop and laptop users even VLC has a Metro app.

Microsoft is sacrificing desktop and laptop upgrade sales to shoehorn themselves in the tablet market. If the execution was not as bad (hard drive space) Windows RT might had a chance.
