“Microsoft’s early marketing materials aren’t exactly highlighting that differences between Windows RT and Windows 8 — and as a result, there’s a high potential for unsuspecting consumers to end up burned when they buy a Windows RT tablet expecting the complete Windows experience.”
Chuckle. Some claim confusion by consumers may have killed off GNU/Linux on netbooks. What will “8″ and “not 8″ do for WARM? I certainly cannot tell them apart from the “notStarting Up” and the “notStart” screens. I think */Linux on ARM is safe for now. I wonder if x86 is safe from GNU/Linux though? Consumers who will buy a PC with rectangular regions of the screen with widgets may well prefer it. If I were a retailer, I would stock up on GNU/Linux PCs just in case consumers run away from “8″.
