Wow, lots of discussion. I think part of my hesitation is just that it's so hard to be a fervent Microsoft user. It's like every time I see something new, I'm thinking oh god, they're gonna screw it up again. I feel like I'm always getting burned, WP7, Zune, I live my life in fear that they'll throw in the towel on the Surface. My brain says they can't afford to give up, but my heart says I can't take it anymore . They still haven't made a dent market share wise, so part of me thinks maybe I should make the low risk switch on the phone and wait a couple of years and see if Google makes a tablet that doesn't suck and maybe finally just switch ecosystems. On the other hand I can never envision using the Chrome operating system, so it really never would be a full ecosystem swap. I hate Google and Apple is such overpriced hipster crap...why oh why can't people just get over Microsoft's past reputation...my Windows devices are so pretty and functional!!
