Microsoft "Microsoft's Surface RT is getting price cuts across the world this week as the company looks to boost sales of its first ever tablet hardware." Great vote of confidence on a platform barely out the door.

If you want something to run Linux, then don't buy a tablet designed for running Windows.

Why not? If the hardware is priced as such that it makes economical sense, and you are able to run Linux on it, I can't see any reason not to.

Don't come around complaining that it does not support GNU/Linux properly afterwards.

If people want proper GNU/Linux hardware support from hardware vendors, they should vote with their wallet, instead of buying hardware designed for Windows or Mac OS X and then complaining it does not run GNU/Linux.
