    Out of curiosity, where did you see that Windows sales are growing? Not in the article you link :)

    Lot of Windows tablet sales are taken from PC notebook sales for the convertible or two in one segment.

    IDC and others are putting things like Surface Pro in a different category even tho people are buying because they run desktop software.

    You might say most convertibles are Windows tablets but with limited touch apps, most people are running desktop software.

    That still counts.

    Tablet news are relevant only because of the perception that its taking PC sales. Also, the usage model is different, but Surface categories are still Tablets. They also help offset quite a bit of PC market decline. Add to that Windows Tablets of any sort never sold in such volumes as today.

    did windows tablet changes any of your lifestyle?

    it changed mine. More and more time wasted for working. While in queue, while in a trip... Now im out of job and its even worse lol.

    Edit:
    On the plus side it allows me to do a quick video editing or game making or sketching or any computer work on-the-spot.

    Really useful when there's a family meet-up or when coming to marriage.

    Tap tippity tap, bam! "check your WhatsApp"
