    Windows 8 'touch-ups,' please

    I like the Surface Pro. It drips with potential. That's the good news.
    The bad news is that Windows 8 touch doesn't do the Surface Pro justice.
    Try this. Use an iPad for an hour; then jump to Windows 8 touch. It's a bumpy transition.
    Windows 8, at times, strikes me as Windows 7 touch with a Metro splash-screen bolted on. (Yes, there were Windows 7 touch laptops -- I've used them).

    Which leads me to what's good about Surface. If you look at it as a thin, lightweight laptop that happens to have a touch screen, then it begins to make sense. And Panos Panay, the guy who heads Microsoft's Surface Pro business, said as much last month.
    But with the 'Personal' taken out of the PC.
