Two years later, Microsoft is still unable to make its Surface Hub 2X dreams a reality. Does it matter? Or is this just a minor glitch in the matrix that is Microsoft’s hardware business?
It’s reasonable to at least ask. Ever since Microsoft announced its first-ever PCs back in 2012, the software giant has been both competing and partnering with the very companies that established it has the one-time leader of the personal computing market. Since then, its relationships with PC makers seem to have normalized, and it’s been years since bitter PC executives have lobbed passive-aggressive complaints about the Surface business. At least publicly.
