Windows "Three days into Computex Taipei, Asia's biggest computer show, not a single manufacturer has announced a Windows RT device. Windows RT, the version of Windows 8 designed for more power-efficient ARM processors, made its official debut at last year's show on a convertible tablet by Asus." Not surprising. Windows 8's Metro is pretty terrible in and of itself, and on Windows RT specifically, it's even worse. My Surface RT is very promising, but Windows RT 8.1 better fix the loads of performance issues cripling the operating system.

I wonder if the reason why Microsoft still haven't come up with a name for "Metro" (modern UI does not appear to be their final decision), is that it's more difficult to hate something without a name. And Windows RT; come on! They serially have to do something about their naming.

I'm still waiting for Microsoft's Postmodern UI.

I think that the Nokia syndrome is infectious: MS currently lacks a aim, despite all promising things they are showcasing.

Looks like they are being plagued by competing non-integrated development teams crafting products that overlaps each other in functionality, or are locked in a perpetual re-engineering effort (their web services?), and a management that don't make his mind about what solution is better.

So they keeps swinging from one side to another throwing everything out of the window to see if something sticks and the market accept.
