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.

Well - another one that falls for the marketing trick..

Yep - they are sold out.

Well - actually most shops do only had a few in stock, and they where indeed sold out. I have seen several story's about someone wanting to buy this thing, but the shop had only two in stock to start with. One was sold around early in the morning and the other one a few hours later. When he came for one at midday both where sold. There were even shops that could not deliver the pre-ordered devices, because (deliberately or not - make your choice) they did not got what they asked for.

The marketing trick is obvious. Give shops a very low supply, and when they run out of this small supply claim a huge success because all available stock is sold the first day!

Now - I think it is more interesting to know how many devices where actually sold, and how many of them where pre-ordered devices. That would give a better picture about what actually happened..
