Has Microsoft been clear on RT/x86 apps?
I believe so.
<blockquote>Update: Microsoft actually does have a far better mention on another part of the Surface landing page. If you go here, you'll actually find the phrase "Works exclusively with apps available in the Windows Store" high up the page. That phrasing still doesn't quite explain things, but it's not bad.</blockquote>
Technically Microsoft is right, because the store redirects you to the developers website. And there is no info on wether the store on RT devices will display x86/desktop programmes. This argument is valid, but Microsoft has done what it is supposed to, if the consumer is flat out stupid there is nothing they can do about it,

It's not Apples fault that she thinks there is a difference in 'normal internet' and 'Apple internet'.
People need to stop trying to make Microsoft customers and mindless drones or so computer illiterate that don't know what they pay for and Apple consumers as the 'tech savvy crowd'.
People did not buy Win7 tablets because they dont WANT to use the desktop on tablets, and I believe its pretty clear that on RT its all about the Metro UI and people wont even expect to do desktop stuff on there.
It seems that every blog is nitpicking on this, if they cant find any serious issues with the product they just aim for the supposed lack of intelligence of costumers. The only valid point I have seen made is price, indeed its pricy and I would have wanted a 299/350 Surface without keyboard but its not a dramatic issue.
Just wanted to put it out there.
