when windows 8 starts offering what android and ios are offering with same battery life,that is when people will come to understand that Microsoft made the right move. i see apple and other companies catching up at the end. android might not cos it can ran on x86 platforms but W8 will surely come ont top. just a matter of years. everyone will love a full blown OS on their tablets not half baked.
