It seems like wherever I go lately, people are taking about Microsoft Surface. As I travelled last week around the country, I saw a Microsoft Holiday store in Chicago, had a good friend ask me about it over dinner, saw it on display in a Conde Naste photographic exhibition at Art Basel and noticed people tweeting about it all over the Internet. It’s thus with extreme enthusiasm that I am pleased to announce Surface will be the focus of tomorrow’s chat. And we will have a special guest: Panos Panay, the visionary behind the heralded device and general manager of the Surface team will join us to answer questions about the creation of Surface with Windows RT, Surface with Windows 8 Pro and more.
For those of you who want to get a bit more information before the chat, please check out:
During the chat, we’ll discuss the difference between Type and Touch Cover. We’ll share where you can purchase a Surface, more about the different models available or coming soon and how the device will work great for work and play. Not only that, but we will be giving away Microsoft Store Gift Cards to a few lucky individuals.
To participate in the Tech Tuesday Live Twitter Chat:
This is off topic. I recently bought a Asus windows 8 touch notebook. Here are my comments of the Windows 8 OS:
1. Unlike Windows 7 the "All Programs" are placed in sprawling tiles making a program harder to find. Is there a way to view the "All Programs" similar with Windows 7? Is it possible to separate the Windows 8 RT applications with the programs compatible compatible with the desktop interface?
2. In laptops and PC's, I prefer the desktop interface to be the front window rather than the RT start menu.
