My view

MS o/s for surface tablet they released is high bloat ware – for example if you buy a 32 GB tablet you get 9 GB usable space. That’s a simple measure of high bloat ware

All these worked well for them until MS and Intel had tacit understanding (of accommodating the bloat ware)

Unless MS works on complete rework of Windows for tablets, their tablet dream (even with Nokia on their side now) is not likely to succeed


MS should pass on the windows software for tablet to micromax and xolo kind of people if they can not drop the price. The only way to remain in market is to cut the cost till 10-15k INR

Why the heal they are into manufacturing when they are not focusing on software updates like 8.1 which must hit market 1-2 years back.
