As much as I appreciate Surface in idea, it just had so little chance to succeed. Even if Ballmer and co went about things a different way, I just can’t see Windows on ARM being compelling when both Android and iOS are well-established.

It helps that I generally don’t like the way Microsoft does its mobile OSes (tiles, namely)… I prefer good ole icons. It wouldn’t surprise me if either iOS or Android changed that in the future as well though, to keep things fresh and interesting.

I think Microsoft needs to focus mostly on its smartphones at the moment and then Surface Pro. Make either of these platforms truly successful before going on to the next thing.

He’s not quite our of lives, that’ll be another 12 months or so.
