It isn’t often we get to review a new piece of technology so soon after its release, so you can imagine our excitement to get our hands on the Microsoft Surface 2 (RT). My expectations for the Surface 2 were not high, considering the negative press for the original Surface, and dismissal by the industry of the second generation.
The Microsoft Surface 2 features Windows 8, and as a current user of Windows 8, I have many thoughts about it now that I’ve used it for several months. Shortly after deploying Windows 8, I made the move to Windows 8.1 Pro Preview and now to Windows 8.1 Pro. I have had a number of complaints about the move, but Windows 8.1 is a better OS than Windows 8 and enough to make one wonder why Microsoft didn’t incorporate its features in the first version. However, credit is due to them for listening to their customers and making necessary changes. We look forward to continued improvements in the future.
