Hello all. I've been waiting for the Surface for a long time, and I expect to pull the trigger soon. I ventured out to a Best Buy in Austin that had the Surface, the VivoTab RT, and a non functional ATIV to actually try things out. I left mostly frustrated as hell and am starting to research how I can use all of my Microsoft services with Jelly Bean... I've watched some video reviews and searched the boards, and don't see people having the problems I had today. As I was playing around with the Surface, I accidentally rebooted it about 60 seconds in. It took over 20 minutes to restart, because BB apparently refreshes the image of some tablets each reboot. No problem, off to the VivoTab RT. Except this Tab apparently had some sort of finger tracking issue with "ghost fingers" making it damn near impossible for me to do anything besides hit the Windows button. With two out of three Win8 RT tabs out of commission, I tried to change default search, maps, etc. on an Android tab to Bing with no luck. When the Surface finally came back to life, I started trying to open IE from Metro in InPrivate mode. I found no way to do this, so I switched to desktop mode (Q1: Can you pin InPrivate mode directly to the Metro start screen?). Here I discovered right clicking is *completely* hit or miss. Sometimes I could right click and pull up the appropriate context menu (where I found "Open in InPrivate"), and other times nothing would happen, but I would see what appeared to be the edge of a dialog box near the bottom of the screen, that I was unable to touch or drag. I switch to portrait orientation of desktop, same result. Completely unreliable; long press and hold, short press and hold, there seemed to be no feedback as to if I'd held the right click long enough or not, so it was a guessing game that I tired of quickly. The sales guy kept mentioning that the software builds BB put on the Win8 hardware was pretty wonky, and maybe that was why stuff didn't seem to function right. I ventured back to the VivoTab and figured that rebooting it and turning from landscape and portrait and back was like shaking up an etch a sketch, giving me just enough time to be able to poke at the screen accurately before the ghost fingers make the interface unusable. Jumping straight into desktop mode, I discovered the exact same problem with right clicking that I had on the Surface. (Q2: Without resorting to using the trackpad, am I just doing something wrong, and there's some easy way to right click? A gesture I don't know of?) While playing with the Androids (Asus, too) I naturally found no evidence that any functionality was missing based on a "BB build" (the excuse given for the apparent Surface and VivoTab malfunctions). I desperately *want* to love the Surface (and even the VivoTab). I want to be able to overlook that I'll never be able to use Chrome, and probably never a stable Firefox or Maxthon or Opera on RT. I want to overlook that United Airlines will probably never publish an app, and I'll have to pin a web page to my start menu just like I do on my Lumia 920, and that apps I use on my WP8 aren't available for W8 RT. But this kind of stuff will drive my tablet choice straight into arms of the evil empire (GOOGLE) or the evil empire that acts like they take their privacy policies seriously (Apple.) Please tell me I'm nuts.
