I think you're forgetting the Tablet PC. I'd also be interested to know what, in your mind, makes a 'fully functioning operating system' anyway?

I think that's when Microsoft didn't design the Windows UI for touchscreens. The tablet functionality wasn't fully baked in.

I've owned Microsoft stock since Vista's Service Pack 1 - if anything, I'll be buying more (not less) when Windows 8 becomes available in retail, and especially if it dips in price.

Microsoft has this rather annoying habit (for a company much despised and reviled) of not staying down when it gets knocked down. No, it's not Apple, or Google - it just has this rather nasty habit of confounding its adversaries.

For that reason, Microsoft is THE company most like the United States.
