Patents are durable long-term advantages. I hear Apple has some. (sigh)

The Surface appears to be the answer Microsoft gave to the tablet question over a decade ago. How is this going to be different now exactly?

This guy keeps mentioning a "long-term war of attrition" -- what exactly is this guy going-on about. This is real ass-scratching stuff.

Which is why Microsoft products have been vulnerable to every load of malware for nearly two decades.

Apples recipe for success: Great Products + Total Control (Lock Out/In)
Tradeoffs are always made regardless of platform. Apple devices don't house an OS and initial software, thus consuming storage, etc.? "More flexible" means that the user can decide which compromises get made and availability of configurations and upgrades.
Different strokes for different folks. Or the right tool for the job.

Do you see a trend here?

Exactly right. Apple has the right solution for me; for many Mictosoft is a better fit (and I work in a Microdoft world). Harleys and Hondas both roll down the same roads, buy their riders have differing needs and requirements.
