Many people have criticized this decision as a foolish attempt to enter the tablet space with a desktop operating system. But I think it's a smart idea, since this makes Windows 8 the only operating system that can power no-compromise hybrid tablet/desktop machines.

I tested the application's OCR quality and found that it's mediocre under the best conditions and poor under real-world conditions. However, I believe that this poor performance is caused in part by an intentional decision by Google."
