I spot a Microsoft Surface in the wild!
 Omaha and I went out for lunch today, and while we were getting our bagels I noticed that the man sitting at the table next to ours had a weird looking tablet, but it was the chicklet keyboard that gave it away.  "Look," I told Omaha, "A Microsoft Surface in the wild."

The guy overheard me and snorted.  "Yeah.  Kinda weird, huh?"

"How good is it?"

He shrugged.  "It's not great.  But I need it for Excel."

And that encapsulates much of Microsoft's marketing since Windows 3.1.

I haven't seen one in the wild yet that wasn't a Microsoft Employee purchase.

Actually, when 3.1 came out, Lotus 1-2-3 still lead. Remember that? Post-Windows 95 tho', sure.

In person only, I have some amazing stories about that whole era.
