Ok..the writing is on the wall..... cut a deal with OEMs ....free windows 8 for a year. or cash back to people or whatever...and stop p*sing them off.

Concentrate, spend more time on making Windows 8 more performant.

The UI is not 3-D aero style but flat drab 2-D style and the battery still gets less than iPad ? WTF ? Surface NEEDS TO BE more performant. Make more usable apps.

Quit spending resources and energy on trying to be a hardware guy.
