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.

Your mom [sic] should research what a product is capable of before making that purchase as should every other consumer.


I'm sorry. But they put a Windows badge on it. It's as confusing as the whole Vista sticker thing was. A person comes into a shop and sees a Windows machine. It looks very similar to other Windows machines. Even has a sticker saying Windows. There is an expectation that a brand will mean something. Having 3 levels of branding is counter-productive.

If they called it something else than Widnows then it would be painfully obvious, that it's not going to run your apps. They could have called it Metro(or something other, since that name is registered)
