The OS wasn't installed under normal circumstances. It's not even fully functional. What is there to defend? Rather than prove a point, you ended up looking like a fool
not under normal circumstances? what is it that's hindering its performance? can you enlighten me? metro on windows 8 running on an older atom netbook using software rendering is smoother than a java phone os(android) running on a core i5. ridiculous.
Step backwards? Last I heard Windows (Phone) 8 was still lagging pretty far behind in the touch-enabled app department so there are probably lots of software reasons why. What if you are a software developer and want to make something for Android and Windows 8? It isn't like he threw Windows 8 away.
Sure, one could just go out and buy an Android Tablet, but what fun is that!?!?!
I agree with others that a Windows RT tablet running Android would be cooler .
last i heard, android doesn't have tablet apps. and why are you comparing windows phone? the surface runs windows 8. who wants to run phone apps on a computer?
