Microsoft The Verge, reporting that Microsoft lost almost a billion dollars with Surface RT, in this quarter alone. "At the end of the day, though, it looks like Microsoft just made too many Surface RT tablets - we heard late last year that Microsoft was building three to five million Surface RT tablets in the fourth quarter, and we also heard that Microsoft had only sold about one million of those tablets in March." That's catastrophically bad.

so the answer is: no, you can't substantiate your claim objectively.

Got it.

You're wrong, and I'm sorry I'm not going to waste time holding your hand and walking you through why. Windows RT and Windows 8 run the same exact Metro applications.

There are more Metro applications than there are tablet applications for Android, unless something dramatic has happened with Android tablet stats.

I find it unlikely given that Google has not publicly shared such stats, and that Apple also dinged Android for the same exact thing not too long ago.

Its a shame, because for a while I did consider you as one of the few reasonable people left on this website.

Ideas worth taking into account should stand up to scrutiny. If you need to bring out very subjective assumptions and arbitrary qualifiers, then don't be surprised if I consider your point suspect. Even if you end up being correct after all.

We have gone through this a few times before though; you seem to operate under the delusion that your personal qualitative opinion somehow constitutes validated quantitative fact. Perhaps that explains why you seem to become irate whenever your words are not taken as canon?

In any case, not earning your "approval" has really hit me hard in he feels. I guess I will just have to pick up the pieces and take it one day at a time, one day at a time...
