It's doing well..

Ballmer just finished the WP8 announcement and mentioned that Windows 8 is selling more than Windows 7 did and that the Surface was exceeding expectations.


Well Ballmer said that Zune was selling well.. and we know how that ended up.. until we actually see numbers and 3rd party numbers it's premature to claim it's selling well..

I don't know anyone who wants one and that says a lot.

Don't worry, surface could sell 100 million before Xmas and Boz would tell you we have to wait and that Android is way more awesome and probably sells more.

Umm Zune was selling well, it took the second place and had a significant marketshare in a market owned by iPods. The market today in this is very different and not quote as dominated. Though android isn't doing terribly well in comparison to iPad.

Actually, that doesn't say anything at all.

Huh? The Surface is another product in the Windows 8 linup, the surface could fail but now there are 50 other tablets and HUNDREDS of other form factors running windows 8.

Did you also miss the part where Microsoft said you won't be able to watch tv or read a magazine without hearing about the Surface, Windows 8 and Windows phone? Certainly doesn't sound like they're pussyfooting around so i'm not sure what point you're trying to make.

My guess is that they were making fun of Apple fanboys. i would have done the same.


I doubt. MS fans are as worst as Apple fans.

BTW Eaton ?
