Microsoft odpowiada na pytania o Windows 8/RT

Wątek pojawił się na Reddit i pierwszy, zdaje się, linkował do niego Gruber. Oto kilka perełek, które mi wpadły w oko …


How big is the install of Windows RT? Meaning if I get a 32gb unit, how much free space will I have?


I am Ricardo Lopez, Test Manager for Surface RT. After the OS, OfficeRT and a bunch of apps, you will still have more that 20GB.

WinRT zajmuje około 12 GB vs. 1GB dla iOS. Filmy i zdjęcia można trzymać na karcie SD.


I noticed that the Surface has a resolution of 1366×768 vs the iPad3 2048×1536. Do you think this will affect users considering the Surface vs the iPad ?


Hey this is Stevie. Screen resolution is one component of perceived detail. The true measure of resolvability of a screen called Modulation Transfer Function (MTF), not Pixels. MTF is a combination of both contrast and resolution. There are over a dozen subsystems that effect this MTF number.. Most folks just focus on one number out of dozens that effect perceived detail. Without good contrast resolution decreases. Check out contrast sensitivity of the human eye graph ( and if you want more see the links below. Basically, as resolution/DPI increases the eye has becomes less sensitive. So as a result, the amount of light in a room and the reflections off the screen have a huge effect on the contrast of the display. In fact, a small amount of reflection can greatly reduce contrast and thus the perceived resolution of the display. With the ClearType Display technology we took a 3 pronged approach to maximize that perceived resolution and optimize for battery life, weight, and thickness. First prong, Microsoft has the best pixel rendering technology in the industry (cleartype 1.0 and 2.0) .. these are exclusive and unique to Windows, it smooths text regardless of pixel count. Second, we designed a custom 10.6” high-contrast wide-angle screen LCD screen. Lastly we optically bonded the screen with the thinnest optical stack anywhere on the market.. something which is more commonly done on phones we are doing on Surface. While this is not official, our current Cleartype measurements on the amount of light reflected off the screen is around 5.5%-6.2%, the new IPad has a measurement of 9.9% mirror reflections (see the displaymate link: Doing a side by side with the new iPad in a consistently lit room, we have had many people see more detail on Surface RT than on the Ipad with more resolution.

Według Stevie ClearType daje lepsze efekty niż Retina.


Does the kickstand arrangement work for someone who wants to type with Surface on their lap? To me it looks like it’s only stable on a table top.


hey, I’ve been using my Surface for a couple of month now. It works on your lap in multiple ways. Typing on the lap works fine, Surface is great for typing while on your couch. There are so many ways it folds and adjusts to your typing needs. You will be pleasantly surprised. :)

Z klawiaturą? Bez? Chciałbym zobaczyć tą stabilność na kolanach.


Why did you and your team chose USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0?


Pavan: The full size USB 2.0 port on Surface supports hundreds of millions of devices that are out there… We chose USB 2.0 based on capability of the ARM SoCs during our development timeframe.

To trochę tłumaczy.

    O ja pierdzielę, nie wierzę !!!!!
    Podejrzewam że zwrot „bunch of apps” mówi o aplikacjach tylko live messenger, galeriach video, edytorach tekstu windowsowych, itp.
    Staram się patrzeć obiektywnie na różnice w systemach, ich zaletach i wadach ale to jest jakiś totalny shit.

    MTF? Kolejny nic nie znaczący TLA?
