Dude, Windows RT/surface, is completely locked into the Microsoft walled garden. You cannot buy or install an application from anywhere but the microsoft market.
So, Um, how is warning about that considered "fud"? It seems pretty fucking certain to me.
I'd downmod you for being snarky but it's sadly true.
And I totally forgot about bing, so that's 4 strikes.
Three strikes and you are out Balmer...
"Finders keepers" is a fine argument for the schoolyard, but it's moral value is negligible. Ownership rights come with responibilities, especially ownership rights to unique resources. If a party decides to take ownership of something with the sole purpose of ransoming it to an owner who will actually use it, that is not "free
market" - it's exploitation.
So when applying that "logic" of yours to the oil and gas companies pulling the unique and limited resource of fossil fuels out of the ground, how exactly do you explain away the obvious moral problem?
It seems to me to be an argument for stagnation.

Have you used windows 7? the search bar searches programs and enter executes them, I'd say that 85% of my customers are typing excel instead of mousing through multiple menus.
If it says it supports that OS on the outside of the box then YES, I DO expect it to be included.
Would you care to explain how AMD/ATI's revenue is different because I choose to use Linux instead of windows?
I still paid the same amount of money for the card.
Furthermore, we all know for a fact (because it's happened for every other piece of hardware) that if they released the details needed for the Linux community to write it's own drivers, they'd never have to write another one for Linux, ever, AND they would benefit from being able to take the concepts and optimizations created by the Linux community and fold them into their windows drivers.
What's wrong with windows 8? This is best illustrated with a picture, (1000 words and all that)
Been there, moved on.
