Tablet PC

Bill Gates says:

The launch of the Tablet PC marks an exciting new era of mobile computing that is limited only by the imagination of its users.
Steven Frank, Newton user, doesn’t find much to like, though:
I hear Bill Gates did quite a bit of Newton-bashing in his Tablet PC introduction. That takes some pretty serious brass, considering that Microsoft has apparently learned absolutely nothing from the Newton’s initial missteps and subsequent evolution. Good luck with that $70 million marketing blitz, you nutty visionary, you.

Seriously, what is Microsoft’s problem? They’ve had plenty of examples to learn from dating back to GO, lots of time and money, and didn’t they hire some of those Newton experts?
