» Zune 2.0

The Verge’s Tom Warren suggests the Surface RT is the Zune 2.0: not a terrible device, but one lacking a real compelling case.

As is so often the case, Microsoft was hobbled by its inability to make a clean break with its cash cow, Windows.

I often wonder what would have happened if Microsoft had created a Surface OS without the desktop and left Windows as its desktop OS with the Start menu that they’re now having to put back in. Windows is becoming an albatross.
