And, if it's decided that application X violates some patent, they can remotely delete it from your device and give you store credit! But, forget about accessing all the data you wrote with that application - you only 'licensed' the software anyway.
He loves Windows RT because it means people have to go through the Microsoft store, so they get money whether they made the app or not. It's the same reason Apple loves their app store. Somehow, it hasn't registered with him that a lot of us might own 5 or 6 hundred dollars worth of Windows games that we still play and don't want to re-buy for each architecture.
As for the pool: Dropping it in a pool is the exact analogy the ChromeOS guys were throwing around three or four years ago. ChromeOS is better in this respect though, because all of your data resides in their cloud.
Win8 RT is pretty good, but I'm going to wait for it to be obsolete in 6 or 7 months when Windows Blew RT is released.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
