Microsoft nonsense

I learned this morning that Microsoft was dropping support for WinRT, their tablet operating system.

Am I surprised?

Not really,  Microsoft has a history of dropping interesting products just before end users get over a hump, be it usability or technical.

Experts quote a number of issues like keeping the desktop and/or running office within a desktop environment.

I don't know, I kind of like the consistent experience even if it means the blue screen of death. ..

So after investing 400$ for my tablet and another 400$ for my son's I will put my tablet on a shelf next to my Zune 120.

I can't say that on the next time Microsoft whips out a new piece of hardware I'll be too inclined on investing any money in it... fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice. .. shame on me.
