"Ever tried connecting a Surface Pro to your company's Active Directory and implementing GPO?" - this is a big red flag to me you are either spreading FUD knowingly or you genuinely don't know what you're talking about. All Surface Pro tablets can use full AD and that's been documented for years.

"You haven't lied, yet stayed away from telling the truth as well. " - it seems you have your own version of selective reality too. Windows 8 is a big shift from traditional Windows but you seem to imply there'll be no change to this, which is very unlikely to be the case. As Vista was slow to get people off XP, Windows 8 will is similar in that respect (albeit for different reasons; Win8 is mainly a UI paradigm shift instead of a kernel one) but the point is that most will get there in the end as they did XP -> Win7.

News at 11. Glad to see the circle-jerk here is just as strong as ever - gotta reassure ourselves that MSFT is (still) on the brink of doom after all.

Some people don't want 2 devices for 2 separate functions; there's a real market for one device that can scale up when necessary, and the Surface 3 Pro is aimed at those people. Not everyone of course - some people enjoy having multiple devices, but a decent chunk, myself included just want one that you can accessorise into a full-on power PC if you want, which this does nicely.

...if Microsoft has released something with a bug like this. Somehow I doubt there'd be so much analysis. To me this demonstrates that open != secure necessarily; how long has anyone been able to read the source-code here and even known about it for months? Let's just all agree that open-sourcing code is no guarantee of any kind of quality.

From the last quarter (Q3) -

"The Entertainment and Devices Division posted revenue of $2.53 billion, an increase of 56% from the prior year period. Adjusting for the recognition of revenue related to the Video Game Deferral, the division’s non-GAAP revenue increased 33% for the third quarter. Xbox LIVE now has over 46 million members worldwide, an 18% increase from the prior year period."

I call shenanigans.
