I agree with this move by Samsung. For whatever reason, Microsoft hasn't done anything it seems to distinguish the differences between Windows 8 and Windows 8 RT to American consumers. The reason they're a successful company is because of smart decisions like this.

Windows is dominating PCs, Laptops and Ultrabooks. However, It starts doing well in phones as Windows Phone8 (thanks to Nokia Lumia) , but it is still struggling in the tablets sector.
In fact, Windows Surface RT would be epic fail because the name of RT gives to the user a clue of DEFICIENCY compared to the regular Windows 8.
I think the last chance for Windows in tablets is the tablet that would come from Nokia. If it would be nice, sleek and not expensive, I think there would be a chance for Windows to gain glory in the tablet sector.

In Samsung CES keynote Microsoft state they are transforming from a software company to a devices and services company. Sound like upcoming Apple no 2.
Samsung instead of getting sue by apple alone they have to worry about m$ competition/lawsuits as well.

Unfortunate, but Samsung probably made a wise choice. Perhaps they'll ultimately make a variation of the Surface Pro.
