Intrepid reader Yves Milord snapped a pic of what might be the first error message seen on a Microsoft Surface. UPDATED
It's not a system-wide fail, and we still like the Surface, but who doesn't love an error during promotion? Microsoft "goons" apparently hustled Yves immediately out after he snapped this shot, before he could do any more damage. Keep stickin' it to the man, readers! [Thanks, Yves!]
Correction: The Windows 7 touch UI above was not developed by the surface team, and so this general error message has nothing to do with them, and concerns only the separately developed UI.
