Per bolded, that reminds me of a very critical editorial against Surface. The argument was that "tablets are for media consumption, duh." ...Uh, because previous tablets were not created for productivity, ergo that's all they were good for, but that doesn't mean tablets can't be manufactured for productivity in various sectors. (That was a pretty stupid author.) According to this article, you can print from any Metro app using the charm. That sounds like an end-user solution; does there really have to be a lot of dev intervention?
