I own an hp envy x2, a windows 8 (now windows 8.1) hybrid. So, recently I switched career from IT to engineering. Got a job at an engineering firm as an engineer. So, long story short, after working on the job for a while, I realized that a lot of the procedures are really archaic. Why, you ask, does a major engineering firm so far behind as far as tech goes? Because it's run by a bunch of old grumpy engineers. For example, half of our computers still run on xp. A lot of things are still done by hand. In fact, some older guys prefer to do their designs entirely by hand instead of using one of the various CAD programs out there. They've been in the company forever, so people just leave them alone. Anyway, I started working on a metro app for my personal use to do calculations and automate a lot of the processes that come with the job. See, some times I have to go out to the field and do inspection work to make sure the contractors are doing what they're suppose to. And it involves me checking their work, make calculations of my own, and submit reports. Anyway, so instead of submitting calculations done by hand like everybody else, I started submitting printouts from the app I've been working on as parts of my reports. My supervisor started noticing them. One day, he had me come in and explain to him what I've been using. I took out my envy x2 and showed him my work. He became really intrigued and said this might be bigger than I thought. If what I'm working on works out, he will buy everyone in the office a tablet for field work. He then asked me which tablet I would recommend. I said the Microsoft surface (been eying it for a while). The next day, while I was inspecting one of the structures that our contractors have been working on, my supervisor came by. I noticed his arm was wrapping around something. Holy cow, it was a surface 2. I recommended it the night before and the next morning he bought it. Later, he asked me to install the metro app I was developing on his surface 2 and he started using it in the field for testing purposes. Ever since, he's been giving me very helpful suggestions. Anyway, just now, I just ordered a used surface rt from amazon. So, watch out, MS. My company might start ordering surface 2's for our people. My question to you guys is this. See, the reason I chose the surface rt is because of its durability. Engineering field work can be rough some times. You guys think I made the right choice by recommending the surface to my company? The reason I decided to develop in the metro environment is because I've developed for iOS and android and they always seemed half-cooked to me. Windows 8/RT seems solid for me.
