Windows 8 and the Cost of Complexity – stratēchery by Ben Thompson
We missed posting this post from Ben Thompson when it came out last month, but it’s worth a read.

This is the problem with the no-compromise approach: the compromises made on a tablet are part of the win for users. It’s like trying to make a large bonsai tree.
