MS needs to stop spouting app numbers, and get the 10-20 apps the platform needs! I'm tellin' ya, if MS doesn't get it's app act together fast for Surface RT and WP8, all these cheap android devices that are proliferating are going to leave them permanently in the dust. I feel the Window of opportunity for serious challenge is closing quickly because MS has dropped the ball across the 8 board with lack of the right apps.
Edit: IMO, the tablet war is over. MS will not make significant inroads in the consumer space there. Android then iPad, and that's basically it. They dropped the ball with no middleware (Zune8/iTunes) and lack of killer apps. I'd like to be wrong, but I doubut it. Android tabs everywhere and they are actually fast.
I know you like to complain about WP but this app gap that you're objecting to is being filled for many of us. My bank just released its WP app and its great. I now have all the apps I need and while I might not represent everyone I'm an example of someone who is more than satisfied with the state of the WP Store.
Your Zune complaints are also getting boring. There's no need for a Zune client with WP8 as there are plenty of other ways to get music on to my phone.
