Windows After ditching its Windows RT tablets from the US market, Samsung has now also confirmed to 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.

Windows RT is a failure. Windows 8 is chugging along fine.

Windows 8 is chugging along on Microsoft's lock on sub $1000 laptops.

It's a failure in that they would have been better off never creating it. Windows 7 would be chugging along as well and without the need to spend billions of dollars on making it clear that Ballmer is a dumbass and Sinofsky was clueless. We Microsoft "partners" pointed this out last year at a cost of $0.
