Windows After ditching its Windows RT tablets from the US market, Samsung has now also confirmed to Heise.de it's going to stop selling them in Germany and several other European countries. The company cites lack of interest from consumers and confusion over what Windows RT is. Combined with the massive discounts Microsoft is now giving to OEMs, the writing is on the wall here: Windows 8 - specifically on tablets but also in general - is turning into a failure.

I think they should care about anything that costs a fair amount.

Why spend hundreds of dollars/euro's on something you don't even know for sure what it is, what is can and can not do?

I assume people buy a tablet for a reason, so they better make sure that the tablet can provide it.

You don't need to research for hours or learn every tiny detail, but if you want a tablet that runs "real" Windows applications it isn't too difficult to find out.

For you it isn't difficult but then you read OSNews.com on a regular base... That's telling :-)

I'll be honest, I don't know which Windows Surface/RT/8 does what. I requested a quote from Dell yesterday and just told the guy what I wanted it to be able to do.

I don't know what he quoted though, because I forwarded it to the co-worker that needed one.

I'm playing around with Windows 8 on a desktop and it's not so bad as I expected it to be. Maybe I'll even start to like it.
