Paul “Windows Guy” Thurrott:

I’ve been saying for a while now that Apple fanatics are underestimating the demand for Windows on an iPad-like tablet, and that many consumers probably walk into Apple Stores to see the iPad but then walk out without one when they discover it doesn’t run Windows or Microsoft Office.

That explains the massive sales that Windows tablets (slates/convertibles) have had prior to the iPad, now doesn’t it.
