When I saw the Chromebook Pixel announcement...

I knew they would score it higher than the Microsoft Surface.

I still can't determine why The Verge is so bullish on Windows 8, they seem to make the same empty complaints other publications make like "It's so jarring to move from Metro to Desktop" and "The ecosystem isn't there". It's like they think mainstream users are idiots, but they (The Verge staff) still haven't figured out that Facebook, Twitter, and 90% of the rest of the web works better in a browser.
