Tapper is a great game. I have the arcade machine in my garage. It's been sitting there in the dark for the last 10 years. When I got it it would work without sound, coming up with an "Interface Sound Board error" when it booted. Then the monitor died and that's where it has sat ever since!

Re: Windows is the wrong tool for the job
That isn't true,
Windows isn't for small businesses. Love it or hate it there are multi-site Active Directorys with hundreds of servers and tens of thousands of users all with Exchange mailboxes, and infrastructure with SQL and other MS stack dependancies.
That isn't small business, and saying such shows you have a very narrow grasp of multi flavour IT.
Mine arrived at lunch
I have no shipping confirmation, it just turned up at lunch today. It was supposed to be here on the Friday.
Still I have a £50 voucher to use which is valid until October 2013 and it only arrived one working day late. I can live with that and so far i'm thoroughly impressed with it!!

Re: "Microsoft has worked hard to up the hype this launch"
Not going to mention all that's been said so far to the benefits of the device, but..
I'm pretty sure the PRO version will also support Hyper-V 3.0 meaning any number of other OS's (not Apple) can be run like Ubuntu, Redhat etc, as well as Windows XP,7 and Server versions.
If the PRO is the full Windows 8 version that is promised, this also means you will be able to do live over the air wireless migrations of the vm's from your home lab to your Microsoft Surface.
I mean that's gotta be cool huh?
My God this is like reading the comments from some teenage xbox versus ps3 pointless argument.
Why is it when it comes to technology everyone is suddenly an Apple / Google / Microsoft Internet warrior? Why do people cry foul for Symbian when it's been fucking shit for at least 4 years. I know I had phones running on it. Loved it at first - then started to get a little dissapointed with it when I was on my 4th new contract and phone and the shit looked the same.
It appears there are far to many internet armchair CEO wannabes that think they know better than some of the Corporate masterminds that run these evil corps - yes, Google, Apple and Microsoft. In fact out of those 3 i'd say in the last 2-3 years Microsoft is actually the one that appears less evil than the other two. Microsoft actually donates more money to charity and good causes than Google and Apple combined.
If you want to change the world and believe your comments on here are gospel get out of your IT job and become someone that can make a difference? Just remember that there's people out there that may have a different opinion than you and may just like another tablet/phone/OS than the one you salivate over.
Why we act like this over fucking phone/tablet tech yet don't over cars, tv sets sets, boats, CPU and GPU tech I have absolutely no fucking idea.
Grow the fuck up.
