I don’t know what MS seem to be up to but bringing out the new Surface ONLY on an Arm processor and stating that the new flagship MS hardware won’t run WINDOWS programmes (like Cubase) seems to me to be like shooting yourself in the foot.
Granted the Surface pro (out in three months) will actually have a real processor and will, it seems, be a very powerful laptop/tablet. I may get one if I feel flush, but so many people are going to get the first Arm type and find that there favourite applications are not going to run. I guess th press will slate it.
Seems to me like a giant mobile phone!
Win 8 seems to start making sense if you have a Surface type of machine has both touch and keyboard. Logically I can see the ‘best of both worlds’ thing going on, but there is a bit of a schizm in the software. For example I understand the two versions of IE10 dont actually speak to eachother (the app version and the application version).
Also theboot security features seem to need new firmware and many other security features are bypassed by current applicatrions (I read this somewhere but am no expert).
I just don’t get it really. I could understand it better if the Surface pro was available now with a real CPU
I wonder what Cubase 7 will look like on this operating system?
OK so this is a rant…
I am just puzzled?
What’s other peoples views?
