True.

But I am imagining a tablet either by Samsung or Asus which can dual boot Windows 8 and Android :)

And I am imagining a Tablet With UBUNTU Loaded as a serious and true challenger to Surface since it will be pure OS and not some APP ... UBUNTU has already demonstrated that it is possible ... if that happens then i need nothing as Linux does come with all office productivity tools :)

Multiple User Account is really a good feature. I see its use @ my home. On the same machine my dad can have his clean and office oriented desktop, my sis with her flowery, sunny desktop and me, with that cluttered and geeky screen :)

Surface will become successful.

Note that if you have separate accounts for each member of the family you will need to manage there app purchase separately. So if you have 3 kids and you want to purchase a £5 game you will need to do it for each user costing you £15.
