Ridiculous amount of immature haters in here on both sides of the fence. I've been on the Android band wagon for a couple years now and even this makes me want to play with Windows again. This looks fantastic. Even intrigues me to tinker with a windows phone if they eco-system them well.

Uhh What? (Im fairly sure Apple has released more OS's in the last decade than MSFT)
BTW the Apple Fanboys in this thread
Its just fricking hilarious the amount of insecurity these sheep have.
Heaven forbid there be more competition in the market.
Microsoft's introduction of its Surface tablet engendered buzz like no other we've seen from Microsoft. The big question is, does it stand up to the hype? The answer, succinctly, is yes.
It's impossible to weigh in on Surface when we only handled one of the two tablets, and when each hands-on opportunity amounted to a Supermarket Sweep-style tour of various demo areas. Still, even after some brief handling, we feel impressed
Here it is, Microsoft Surface, the all new, Microsoft-made tablet. We just had our hands on the sleek new device, and we must say — it does feel incredibly well designed.
Microsoft is only showing off the Windows RT version of the Surface, which means ARM CPU and a thinner, 9.3mm form factor. The design and build of the tablets the company has here feel very polished, with tight, clean lines.

quote:I think the part where the two versions will run totally different software might be a fail. If I understand correctly, one version will only run "metro" apps (like Windows phones), while the pro version will have the full Windows OS and will run typical desktop/laptop apps. I think it will confuse people that two versions of essentially the same device will run two different sets of apps.
ok techies, so is this thing cool or is it a fail?
What are "Windows RT" and "Windows Pro?"
Windows RT = Metro
Windows Pro = Metro with full-fledged Windows Desktop
Basically it was all hype and no delivery.
So what are the real-world differences? I use my desktop for spreadsheets (some of them big and complex), web browsing and the occasional word processing. Can RT do all that?
