I'm going to have to wait until Christmas to purchase my Surface 2 (poor Uni student talking here), but they come out tomorrow in Australia and I'm SO going to have a play with them.
Holy crap, how fast is FiOS? Australians are in the stone age with internet speeds.
I, for one, can't wait for Windows 8.1. I've changed my point of view recently and now I GET what Metro is about.
It may not be that fast on my Surface RT (and yes, I am buying Surface 2),...
As I said...how can you get WORK done? I'm using 8.1 at the moment, and enjoying it (but for my inadequately powered PC).
If MS wanted to stay alive, let's put it, they'd remove all traces...
You're on drugs, I reckon. How can you accomplish ANY work?
The day MS drops the desktop is the day I sell my Surface, Windows Phone and PC and move to Apple.
