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.

Some of you are missing the point. I am sure a fair number of people did what they thought was proper research before they bought this tablet. Watch any of the Microsoft ads. Do they ever say ANYWHERE that it is not compatible with the regular windows apps? Nope. Microsoft is using the misconception that Windows RT is Windows. Its not. But people don't realize that until its too late.
