Amen, especially to point 3. I've only just recently started to build a decent support team to help me work on the businesses properly again.

"Frankly, I’d rather consult a doctor who is healthy than one who has the same illness as me."
Actually, I have the exact opposite view. I get migraines - and I'm so lucky that my neurologist gets precisely the same type! He has a VERY vested interest in being up-to-date with the latest research and treatments, and tries them on himself first. I literally couldn't get better treatment than that!
It's the corollary of "Physician, cure thyself!" - in an age when at last they can.

Pricing for this tablet will be interesting to watch. I'm predicting 2-3 times what an equivalent iPad would cost - not far south of Ultrabook pricing - and then a slow decline until MS starts to get sales traction.
Microsoft's forcing their manufacturing partners to compete with Microsoft itself, to strong-arm them into producing the products MS wants to see made. Ironically, this is a sign of weakness. Microsoft didn't have to do this to get convertible laptops (remember them?) into the marketplace, not netbooks. They're leading from the front this time because the firms they seek to command are reluctant to brave yet another charge into yet another Valley of Death. It remains to be seen whether MS can inspire enough moral fibre amongst the troops, or whether MS will advance alone, with the others following only when it looks safe.

@KenG Microsoft have been in the hardware business for a very long time. Every used an MS mouse or keyboard? Or webcam? Or.... This is a step up and out of Microsoft's zone of safety, for sure, but it's only an extension of a process that's been there in the background since the start of Windows.
