Microsoft Has A Problem With The Public's Expectation Of The Surface - Forbes

Some big questions about Windows RT
"That looks set to catch many people out… while Office is bundled with the first Surface tablets, there is no Microsoft Outlook. Looking to put Firefox or Chrome on the hardware as an alternative web browser? You can’t.
How many people who have already bought a Surface with Windows RT are aware of this issue? Even assuming that the majority of people are switched on and understand what they are buying into (and that they are going to be happy with their purchase), that leaves a lot of people who are picking up the Surface RT tablet the day after Windows 8 is launched, in the face of a huge yet generic marketing campaign around ‘Windows’. Will they understand that the Surface RT is a limited version of Windows 8?"
