    I do opposite whatever Thurrott has to say/opine.

    My boss really got in to it with him a few years ago at an MS conference. It was a forum on the future of Active Directory and my boss tried repeatedly (and politely) to explain that his view was not reflective of the way companies were actually using it. Thurrot's final dismissal was "well there's always some people's way versus the right way"

    You KNOW you are dealing with a blowhard when every article he writes starts "As I pointed it out first months ago..." - he's one of those guys at the party that ALWAYS has a better more over the top story than the last guy in the conversation...

    On the other hand, if he did not constantly say outrageous, bombastic things, would any of us bother reading him? :p

    The pitfalls of tech celebrity status...

    My guess is that it won't be that different in terms of performance. Didn't read details of the specs, so I can't tell if the nibs are interchangeable.

    You folks know I like deep diving (too much) into these hardware issues, but the Surface Go is the most curious dichotomy I've ever seen. It's like a great action flick that does gangbusters at the box office with the public - and the movie critics pan it as a POS. Online and YouTube user reviews are generally very positive to glowing, but even Microsoft fanboys like Daniel Rubio praise with one sentence and pan with another, or like Thurrott and other cast it as a POS.

    Instead winning the Oscar it just racks up $100,000,000 on opening weekend. Go figure...

    It should come with an uncomfortable tie.
