Default Hype didn't live up to reality

And MS was actively hyping it too, actively leaking some info, and even putting up a teaser site (

Jeesshhh.... all that for an ultra-mobile Windows PC? Dunno about ya'll, but I've played around with Windows Mobile and Tablet PCs, and really tried to get going on em...

Windows Mobile aka Pocket PC was just too buggy and unreliable. Also, the Windows UI just didn't work on em small screens.

I also bought a Tablet PC when they first came out. Again, it had a half-baked feel to it since it was nothing more than a thin layer over Windows.

If MS is doing ultra-mobile, they have to design something from the ground up rather than recycling Windows code on these devices.

Just My 2 cents...
