    Simple answer: they can't. We keep waiting for Microsoft to refocus its efforts on touch focused UI, but it hasn't happened.

    I think I can safely speak for the majority of people when I say I was grateful when Microsoft announced Windows 10, and focused once again on traditional Windows users. But the time has passed where that focus is entirely necessary. Windows 10 is in a great place on the desktop side of things, now we just need Windows 8 superior tablet mode to make a comeback. In fact, make it even better.

    Honestly I'm not even sure the iPad and similar Windows tablets can really go head-to-head as their use cases can vary drastically.

    My take is that its like comparing a Ford Escape and Chevrolet Suburban. (or Toyota RAV4 vs. Ford Expedition, substitute your own vehicles etc.)

    One is a smaller light-duty/car-based crossover SUV capable of most tasks the average person may perform and the other is a more lumbering, heavier-duty body-on-frame SUV that can take care of just about any task you throw at it. Unless that task is being efficient or easy-to-park.

    Well... MS put the GUI changes in the wrong order. They should have done the W10 GUI first, as a transition from XP. Then brought out the W8 GUI. Then they could compete against the iPad. Also they wouldn't have alienated users and programmers as much.
