Since the tablet mania started by Apple's iPad and Google's Nexus tablets, Windows users have been suffering from tablet-envy, but no more, as now the largest user-base in the world has begun the transition from the PC- to the tablet-computing era: R. Colin Johnson
Here is what Windows8Center says about tablet-envy: Surface represents Microsoft’s 21st-century approach to computing, arguably as innovative as the previous century’s move from Windows from DOS. The touch-enabled, tile-based user interface answers Apple’s iPad and Google’s Android.
More importantly, it represents the natural evolution of the Windows user – and developer– base into tablet computing. Surface moves beyond PC-style direct-access to files–refocusing users on content, not the technical expertise needed to access and manipulate it.
