Windows I have a Surface RT tablet. I bought it because I'm a Windows Phone user, and despite its major flaws, I still hate WP much less than I hate its competitors. As such, it made sense to me that I would like the Surface RT as well - I mean, my favourite UI on a tablet? Count me in! It should come as no surprise by now that Windows RT was a major disappointment, so now that the Windows 8.1 preview is here, did Microsoft address any of the major problems?

In related news, Microsoft drops the price of the Surface RT by $150 effective tomorrow:

Apparently this is done to clear inventory. But the successor (featuring Snapdragon 800 + LTE) is only expected in Fall 2013. It looks like Microsoft expects sales to be slow even at the reduced price.
