So: 6,500 Win 8 laptops later, how are BT's field engineers coping?

Unhappy

What a waste

Am I only only one dismayed by the money BT is throwing about keeping Apple and Microsoft rich? If they used Galaxy Note tablets (with stylus), and inexpensive android phones they would have only 1 OS to deal with, would cost a fraction what they have paid and would be much more portable and easy to replace. Pff, what a waste of money.

I find it difficult to believe a BT engineer really needs the power of a laptop, it's not as if they are simulating the network!

Weird

Is it only me...or does the whole brain-washing of both the staff and the customers seem just a little creepy. Its like they had Derren Brown consulting on staff training techniques. The congratulatory hand-shaking for the first sad customers who queued took the biscuit.

This hype is about a phone that isn't that great (to me anyway) with a marginally better-than-average app store.

Re: No mention of Kubuntu?

Kubuntu is fine for me. As a long-time Debian user, I appreciate Kubuntu's fast turnaround of updates to KDE/QT. Never had an issue upgrading to the latest release - I update it as a rolling-release.

Kubuntu still has 'paid' developers:
