    Can anyone expand on what was mentioned yesterday regarding the <8" screen size. I think those sizes were considered "small" but what does that mean WRT Windows 10? And why isn't 8" not a small screen.

    This means that if OEMs make new tablets (<8 inch) that they do not have to pay Microsoft for the installation of the OS.
    Why 8. They have to draw the line some where.
    And the target market for these "small" tablets are consumers who want to buy a cheap tablet..

    Found this about half way down in this article. Office for Windows 10 will preinstalled free on Windows Phone and small (under 8") tablets. So it's not just the OS.

    Indeed free office is indeed another "bonus".
    Sorry I also should have put that in my first post.

    It's the difference between a Windows "Phone" UI and fully desktop capable X86 UI I would think.
