    Life's always throwing me a curve ball.

    I feel they need to show off a tablet or they've pretty much put it on a back burner (They showed off Surface RT really early)

    Anyone noticed this is a technical preview, we've never had one of them before. That's before developer preview. they'll have to work some, if April release is true.

    Without desktop, but they've shown no device with it themselves (Which they should have tbh).

    Oh well, I'm probably going to jump to an X86 tablet.
