    Correct.

    In the absence of any meaningful competition, MS will force the metro stuff onto the users.

    Joe public goes to pc's r us for a laptop type thing and faces a dilemma. Like 92% of people he doesn't have the entry price for a Mac. Then either he gets something with metro - or he gets nothing.
    That is where M$ has made a big mistake they are getting iThings and Android things by the millions.

    Yes, that may well be the case.

    Joe Public sees what MS is offering on the lappies - then just sticks with what he has already - or treats himself to new ipad/android thing instead.

    This would be a golden time for Apple to do some deep discounting on Mac's and get folks on that platform. You listening Tim?

    Vista and Win7


    I bought my mother, who's 76, a surface and - obviously while I helped her somewhat - she loves it and just gets on with it. She does her email, online banking, she does everything. What she doesn't use is the desktop. She doesn't really know it's there - she's got fairly simple needs.
    This is the key. You have to be a simple push button user and you get along with Windows 8. But as soon as you want to do some real work, the OS is in the way.
