Hardware, Embedded Systems "We're sure that more high-density Windows laptops are on the way, but the Kirabook is the first to make it to market. The laptop raises some natural questions: Does a computer that is both thinner and lighter than the Pixel and the Pros skimp on battery life to achieve these feats? Is the Kirabook good enough to justify its jaw-dropping $1,599.99 starting price? Most importantly, can Windows support high-density displays as well as OS X, Chrome OS, iOS, Android, and others can?" Great laptop, great screen, decent battery life - but Windows' scaling is a terrible mess. Metro is fine, but the proper desktop is a disaster.

long term though Microsoft needs to move more of Windows over to Metro.

That has to be the most obvious piece of flame bate I've seen posted here in a while. Congrats there Mr. Nelson, you win the Captain Obvious Troll award for the month.

OSNews has had like four or five red meat Windows articles filled with clickbait garbage plastered all over the News and Page 2 for the past few days.

Its sad that me inconveniencing the merry band of Metro haters with facts is enough to win me an award, but I hardly think I take the cake for flame bait.
