. . .just another article about why "I" hate Windows 8.
Interesting, but an old song. About the only points they got right, IMO, are price and marketing. As Apple has proven with the sale of the iPad in the tens of millions, many people are not power users looking for a full OS device. My Windows RT based ASUS Vivo Tab is a super device that fully integrates into my MS ecosystem. As a consultant, I use it all day as a primary access point for email, documents, market information and client data. I turn to my desktop (or laptop when traveling) for the heavy lifting.

If it was an Apple Product there'd be a thousand stories around the net about the 50 reasons why you'd need RT. I really hope it does well because in the near future I can see me buying a tablet with RT or Surface, I'm getting bored with my iPad.
Benefit of something like the iPad. Apple AirPlay. With an AppleTV device, $90...you can mirror your iPad output on your TV. It's stuff like this that make these types of devices so popular. I set that up at work this past week and it was really cool and super easy to do.
Don't get me wrong I don't mind the iPad, it's just a bit boring. I like the new way of doing things in Windows 8, most of it is easier than the iPad. Not sure if Surface has DLNA.
I can see Windows 8 and RT really taking off if people just give it a chance, problem is the media, they'll do anything to bury them both, man I'm glad I'm not Steve Balmer there must be millions of Voodoo doll look alikes with needles stuck in them.
I'm curious when the tablets with technology where you DON'T touch the screen is going to come out. That's when I will try to enter the market more then likely. Windows RT i don't think is dead, it's just not used yet as the main source right now in certain markets. British Telecom are using Windows RT in the field apparently if you visit Microsoft Windows 8 Case Studies. I wouldn't put them in the lower category, I'd be willing to try it since ARM architecture isn't really appealing, if the price was lower, I'd be willing to get one. I'm definitely more a netbook kind of guy at this point looking for good Windows 8 options.
After using my Windows 8 tablet for a week, I could not imagine being stuck in RT. The Windows App Store is terrible.
You know, I read that article, or most of it, couldn't take the garbage anymore.
Then I read that site and the majority of the articles on Win8 are negative.
Sorry, but it is all a bunch of rambling BS.
The article posted is complete BS, because RT was not designed for the domain environment and that is very very obvious..
It was designed for the average consumer, yet they couldn't help bashing the hell out of it, for what it was not designed to do in the first place.
Garbage articles filled with misinformation and lies.
