More so trying to get people's thoughts on this... Recently there have been more articles published about whether or not the devices division of Microsoft will continue down the path with the Surface product line. This seems to be based on the sell-through of Surface/Surface Pro as well as how Microsoft has somewhat admitted to the fact that their OEM partners are irritated that Microsoft is competing against them with the Surface. Professionally I'm a SharePoint/.Net Developer. Personally I love Apple products. I have a house full of iPhones and iPads. But I gave up my Macbook Pro for an original Surface and I recently picked up a Surface Pro 2 8gb/256gb and I don't miss my Mac at all especially after getting the dock. My only concern comes in the form of my first point; Am I investing in a hardware platform that may have a limited lifespan? Or was I better off sticking with a Mac and virtualization? If I need a new Type Cover in a year and a half will I struggle to find one? Or will this follow the path of Xbox and have a "rocky" beginning that develops in to a product with deep consumer roots? I know these are specifics that no one has an answer to but I was curious what people think.
