With about 44 million a year coming in on the 408 million shares of stock he owns, I think he will somehow survive.
I'm still baffled as to why Microsoft is continuing on with Windows RT. Hasn't every manufacturer except Dell dropped it from their lineup. The new Surface Pro 2 is pretty cool though, great value when compared to a iPad 128GB. The Surface Pro 2 costs 900, just a 100 more than the iPad 128GB and includes 200GB of Skydrive space, for 2 years, a 400 dollar gift not only do I find it to be a better service than iCloud but Apple only has a maximum of 55GB and charges 100 dollars for it. On a side note Microsoft gives you 100GB for the same money. I think I will defiantly sell my Lenovo Thinkpad 2 and grab one myself, I actually like Windows 8, especially when a active digitizer is available. Photoshop is extremely enjoyable with a Windows 8 tablet. I use my iPad predominantly for music creation and my Thinkpad tablet for work but now with a powerful i5 processor and 8GB of RAM I will be able to run Ableton Live comfortably on a tablet, exciting prospect to consolidate all of my portable computing into one package. If I can get OSX to run on it like with the Surface Pro 1 than this could be the ultimate gadget for me, triple boot; OSX, WIndows 8 and Ubuntu. I really wish they had an LTE version though, the only thing missing, though using my phones hotspot feature isn't such a big deal.
