> will please fans of both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Maybe they should call it Windows 15.

> "It's a new Windows."

kinda overstated, IMO. W3.1, 95, XP, Vista and 8 were...

> Microsoft originally planned to launch Xbox One last week, on October 23.

Stop messing with the time stream!

Mixed metaphore here. Should be either, "chomping at the bit" or "frothing at the mouth".

I thought Bob was the biggest flop?

After Billy Beer, do you really want a Billy phone? Seriously, that's a terrible product name.

Un, not really. More like half-century.

To...what? Dude, don't us hangin'. ;)

Personally, I don't see using RT as a problem. I fact, I think it's perfect for a mini-tablet. The screen's too small things like word processing or image editing, however Excell and Powerpoint...

> 20 GOTO 10

So is the Model-T, but it's respected for what it stood for.

I'm currently reading the book, Almost Perfect by Pete Peterson, which goes into this issue in detail.

IMO, anything less than a seat on the Board would be a waste of Alan's time. Being an advisor to a company who's already decided on what they want is like talking to a wall.

The W100 was pretty cool.

This is fine for text-based apps, but graphic apps, like Photoshop, would be bogged down too much.

I have nothing against cloud computing, per se, but I insist on having my data on-site as well. The cloud is a great place for backing up your data, but I wouldn't use it for live data.

Over what?

LMAO! This is why I love reading your stuff.

More storage with less RAM? I can see that.

For me, the desktop is merely a means to an end. If I can achieve those ends using Metro, that's cool.

Did you mean "intersect"?

But haven't you said in the past that Office was their most important product?

Well there's decisive, then there's /decisive/. :)

Harsh, dude. You don't like YM? Fine, but don't go maligning others because they do. And, no, I don,t use YM.

The problem with version #s is that there's no standard. Just 'cause a program has a higher version # than another, doesn't necessarily mean it's that much better.

I tried this link 3 times on my iPad & it crashed Safari each time.

Saaay, wasn't that pic in the T-mobile article? :)
