Newly announced Intel Atom and Ivy bridge tablets:
*Well, what have you got, then?
-We've got Asus and Windows 8; Acer and Windows 8; Windows 8, HP, bloatware and Windows 8; Windows 8, Windows 8, Lenova and Windows 8...
*Haven't you got anything without Windows 8 in it?
-Well, Asus and Windows 8 has not that much Windows 8 in it...
*I don't want any Windows 8!
Windows 8, when you don't want it, it's remarkably much like spam. The Monty Python type of spam. I can easily get a free license through my university, if I even wanted it. I'd probably just put some Linux distro on it.
Of course you could buy one of them and remove Windows, but you would still be paying Microsoft for things you don't use.
