      Wow!! what a great competition. I have been waiting in great anticipation for a tablet to be released that is suitable for my volunteer work doing teacher training in Battambang Cambodia. So much easier than carting my heavy laptop each time. :)

      Its original name was actually 'Interface Manager' (a name a techo would give it), but the marketers thought 'Windows' would sell better.

      I would love to win a Surface tablet. However, I would like to offer a correction. Windows 1.0 was not a true operating system, it was only a limited application run-time desktop manager environment that ran on top of MS-DOS or PC-Dos. In other words, you couldn't boot from Windows 1, you had to boot DOS, then load Windows.

      I wish this was with the key cover and not the touch cover. I prefer to actually have something tactile when I'm typing. I make fewer mistakes that way :P

      Sorry for the 3 entries. For some reason my phone decided I had hit the enter button when I was nowhere near it. Please disregard the first 2 entries as they contain the wrong email address
