Yah - like the new language from Apple - Swift. Except, if you think about it, Apple has been working on it for 4 years... You should be able to potentially find people with up to 4 years experience with it. That formerly worked at Apple.

Just because a product or a technology has only been on the market for 3 months, doesn't mean that there aren't people with years of experience with it.

I've actually got a Surface Pro (1st edition - Core i5, 4 gig of ram, 128gig SSD) that I bought to run photoshop on. It, like the Surface pro 2, has a Wacom supplied digitizer in it. I only get 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, compared to 2048 for the current Cintiq tablets, but it's more than enough for me. I actually use a Wacom stylus (Bamboo Feel Carbon) with it.

This new one, while having more generic horsepower, and a bigger screen, does NOT come with a Wacom digitizer - but some other one, that only has 256 levels of pressure sensitivity, and only works with their pen.

I think that this was a HUGE mistake on their part, since the size is perfect for art, but losing the detail capability is bad.

As well as a wacom supplied digitizer. I picked up a surface pro (first gen - 128 gig model) for 499 when staples had them on sale. Tossed Photoshop, Illustrator, visual studio, 3ds Max and Unity on there. Added my bluetooth Mac mouse, and I've got a fully functional mobile dev studio. That I can draw on. With pressure sensitivity. Asus has a really nice 8" form factor as well - can't recall the model off the top of my head.

Why do we want intelligent terminals when there are so many stupid users?
