This writeup by Paul Thurrott has me thinking about getting a Microsoft Signature system the next time I'm in the market for a good desktop.

Still my preference to buy a custom/build and install directly from a MS distro.

Interesting concept. A "maybe" for consumers...depending on customer service.

I did check the Microsoft Store...just curious.  It would really help, IMHO, if they'd change their options to narrow down choices. Right now it includes stuff like 'price range', manufacturer, hard drive size, and the like.  What would be nice would be options like battery life, weight, use (home, student, etc).
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Know what you mean, but when I ran across comments like this...

"So we pitched the idea internally, codenamed Foundation, of orchestrating the best end-to-end PC experience we could," Eagan told me. "We were realistic about the economic environment, and of course there could be regulatory issues too.  We wanted to match the best PC hardware we could find with deep testing with the OEMs and offer them insights into what we found out about their systems. This became the Velocity program."

... it got me thinking that maybe the hardware-driver-OS integration might be significantly better with hardware tested and tweaked by the guys with the code, even though they say they are separate from the Windows section of the company.

Quite possible. Heck...look at Apple and their products. Less choice...but more stable.
