It looks like Microsoft may have a hit on its hands with Windows 8 and the Surface RT tablet. This video shows about 100 people cheering when the Microsoft Store in Boston opened, and IDG reporter Martyn Williams reported the same outside the store in Palo Alto, Calif. -- right in the heart of Silicon Valley (see picture below). That said, Microsoft was giving out $100 Xbox Music vouchers to the first 100 people in each line, so that might have juiced the crowds a little bit.
