quote: "We didn't do the work [just to give up]" says Microsoft VP
quote: But I wouldn't create big office documents on a tablet anyways, a 10' keyboard is too small for this.
quote: The very fact that Microsoft even had to make this statement should be a huge wake up call to those few fans of Windows 8 and their claim that we're all just "haters"...
quote: I didn't miss anything. What makes you think that?
quote: It is popular to try to find a hidden meaning, but Microsoft's official announcements were pretty clear ... RT means RT.
quote: Half the people call it Windows 8 RT, and the other half Windows RT. And NOBODY knows what RT even means lol
quote: Yes I know but how does "Run Time" signify some type of tablet activity or mobile device to the average consumer? Which was my point!
quote: RT doesn't mean ANYTHING to the consumer, and "Run Time" doesn't align itself to any product. It's shockingly bad that Microsoft went forward with an OS name that so poorly identifies with anything tangible. Stop trying to impress people with your trivial knowledge of acronyms and understand the context here, please.
quote: Basically, a lot of people are haters who read 1 too many blogs on Windows 8 from people who can't handle change.
quote: Why is it that no one can explain why they like the Start Menu?
quote: "It's because it's lousy and takes too many clicks to do anything. "
quote: I really like the fact that MS aren't afraid of the H8rs and are willing to push innovation. Now I'm not necessarily defending the Metro UI, but the only thing worse than too much innovation is no innovation.
