What I'm hearing in all these comments is that Surface Pro is great for a lot of uses, and has deficits for some Android- and iOS-style uses. Given that Surface AND Win 8 have just emerged, and the others have been refining for years, I give full marks to Microsoft development.
So it might take 8.1, .2, .3 to achieve nirvana, what's new? I hear everyone saying Surface is the right strategy, so I'm getting on board, and can't wait for the day when I run a single OS on Server, Client, Laptop, Tablet, and Phone, and that OS runs them ALL really well. Knowing quite a lot about product development and planning, I can see nirvana from here, while Android & iOS just don't have that kind of potential. All aboard the Microsoft express.!
