Microsoft One of the major lacking features in the newest Office: no Metro applications. In fact, the only reason Windows RT has a desktop at all is because the Office team was unable to create Metro applications in time for the release of Windows RT. I often thought this was a classic case of two important divisions within Microsoft not getting along and not being aligned, but now that I have my own Surface RT, I'm starting to realise that there's a far simpler, and thus more likely, explanation: Metro is simply not ready for anything serious - or for anything at all, really.

You have mentioned this computer so many times I think if you ever become famous and die this computer will go to the Zima museum and be featured at a very prominent spot with permanent spotlights and security.

Don't worry, I will only die without becoming famous. But 1) I think I mentioned my dual Pentium II more times 2) I keep fewer obsolete machines around than you do, only three (also C=64, most likely irreparably broken...) - so of course each is mentioned by me more often, on average, than any of yours ;)

PS. I must note how you avoided addressing the fact that Wintel machine aged better than Macs ;p
