So far everything has been amounting to a major detour away from the desktop. Apparently he expected that to catch on which it didn't for the obvious reasons. To much emphasis on the compete in mobile and tablet to realize that their abandonment of the desktop would have it's consequences!

Microsoft Surface sales numbers revealed as SHOCKINGLY HIDEOUS

Wrote down more inventory charges than it took in revenue


...According to the report, Microsoft's total Surface revenue for all of fiscal 2013 amounted to just $853m. That's nearly $50m less than the $900m charge Redmond took when it discounted its remaining Surface RT inventory by $150 per box.
And that's not all. That $900m writedown was related to Surface RT only, but the $853m revenue figure includes sales of Surface RT and Surface Pro combined.


...Microsoft spent more in a single year advertising the Windows 8 and Surface launches than it took in from Surface sales that same year.
Microsoft Surface sales numbers revealed as SHOCKINGLY HIDEOUS

Also it appears Microsoft is make more money on Android patent licensing fees that selling Windows 8 smartphones.

Meh, and none can port Android to it because of the idiotic un-liftable Secure Boot (only way to save it imho).

Really I'm very sad about so much good hardware (that's a Tegra 3 processor and a quality touchscreen, and the keyboard-flap is cool) that will likely be trashed as none is going to buy it.

I could say the same for an old optical mouse MS had out several years back which was rather unique in design and found to be far more durable then what I was running into in retail outlets! It was discontinued due to how people handle mice as the one main reason it was discontinued. 5 button Optical Trackball Explorer

Likewise MS is investing a bit late in hardware for the mobile market and likely to continue seeing a large fail until they can produce something else new and also unique that will be an actual "eye catcher" everyone wants just like people were despertie for getting their hands on 7 while still in beta and RC stages! MS needs to rethink their fast rush move they just pulled on impulse without first taking many things into consideration!

Agreed. In fact, I'm not sure they took ANYTHING into consideration.
MS believes their plan had to be right because they thought of it. No facts, just ego.
If they tell us to abandon our desktops and switch over to tablets and touch screens, we'll all do it because MS wants us to and they know best, right? Wrong!!

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
