Microsoft has just knocked it out of the park with this product.

LOL!

The more I think about RT, the more I think Microsoft made a mistake even creating it. It's a bit of an odd duck. I think Microsoft would have been better served focusing on x86 Windows 8 tablets, which plays to their biggest strength: the huge library of Windows software.

So they want OEMs to:

Compete with a company that doesn't need to pay for the software
Produce a tablet with no apps (RT needs ARM apps from the MSstore)
Use an ARM processor laden down with windows kludge and competing with iOS.
Pay MS for the privilege (at least in RT&Office costs?)

That will go over well. Maybe as well as RT Surface sales.
