Speaking on presumptuous; I never said you were against change, I said it seemed to be the reason most people were against Windows 8.
Also, I have no issues with you deciding quickly that it's not worth your money. I do however have an issue with you telling people how bad it is based on your quick and - in my opinion - unfounded opinions. It'd have been best if you said: "For the short amount of time I spent with it, I decided it wasn't for me".
Unfounded opinions? Err what? So, now I'm not allowed to not like something? The fanboyism here is really getting annoying. I am starting to feel like Neowin has become to Microsoft what iSheep have become to Apple.
I used the device extensively and I wasn't impressed with it. There is nothing unfounded about my opinion. For starters, an opinion is my viewpoint and, as such, isn't possible to be unfounded, as opinion aren't required to be factual... But I digress...
Let us look at the facts though, the device is laggy as many have pointed out and I confirmed for myself when using it. Additionally, you can't get the Office RTM update directly unless you go to Windows Update in Windows 8, not Metro/RT/whatever they call it now. You do have the full Windows Desktop on the device...
I'm failing to see where I had any factual inaccuracies. It is a shame that we can't have honest discussions anymore and instead we're all expected to be someone's sheep.

is it not possible to update within metro? charms bar>pc settings>windows update.
Yes, that is the easiest way to do it. You then have to be sure to navigate the Desktop Windows Update to see all updates and select Office as it is an optional update. If it were a mandatory update you'd get it eventually without having to dig in there, but the didn't flag it as one oddly enough.
