    It is so obvious Microsoft made a big mistake with the Surface RT. It was pure greed that dictated this decision. Lets hope they do the right thing and end Windows RT and then work to mend relationships with Intel and computer makers to make Windows 8 a success.

      The world is going ARM... Only Microsoft would've been left holding onto x86...

      " Lets hope they do the right thing and end Windows RT "

      • I think Windows RT will die. There is no support from computer makers (they want to keep the current windows ecosystem). And consumers are also saying they are more interested in Windows 8. "You can get Win8 now"...yes I can but its meant to be used on a touch capable device. I am waiting like everyone else for the Intel version devices to be available...So to assume that Windows 8 is a failure after just a month and without Intel-based devices broadly available is quite premature.

      Apple sold 11 iPads per hour during the observation period, while Microsoft didn't sell a single Surface tablet-convertible notebook, Munster said.

      Microsoft Surface is generating a lot of interest, "but interest was not necessarily leading to sales," Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry said in a note Monday.

      Customers he spoke with are waiting for Microsoft to release a version of Surface running the Windows 8 operating system on Intel ( chips. Current Surface models run Windows RT on low-power ARM based chips.

      Sales of Surface tablets would have been five times better than current levels had Microsoft shipped Windows 8 models first, he said.

    • Mosting interesting part of the article is about how most people are waiting for the Surface Pro version to come out and that sales of the Surface would be 5 times better had the Windows 8 version been shipped first.
