People don't care about the OS. Lowcost, Ease, Speed, and Plenty of apps. Do this and the table will fly...

If MS Surface is taken as a reference design (like the IBM PC) then it is good for OEMs who can offer Surface compatible products as long as MS makes the design open.

It does not matter that much actually that MS is integrating hardware with software but what kind of ecosystem does MS provide to other hardware providers will matter most. Taking example of Andriod or ARM, MS should take lead in making sure that both hardware developers feel in a symbiotic relationship rather than in a competitive sphere.

Surface may seems to shift Microsoft from a partner position towards a little bit of competitor position. However, I haven't heard Microsoft will continue selling Surface as one of the product. Surface, really, may just be a reference design to set the tone of a really competitive product. IMO, Microsoft Windows has been pushed into a -ve position because some vendors are leaning towards saving cost than building a competitive product. I was luckily to get a good PC and am occasionally using a 8 years old laptop with Windows XP on it. So, this time, Microsoft may just want to do it right and earn its reputation back. Coming back to Nokia tablet, I was surprise when I heard that MS is building Surface on its own instead of partnering with Nokia. I am looking forward to the tight partnership between the two companies. I believe if it is played right, it will be a win-win partnership.
