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

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.
