If true, Apple should sue Microsoft for patent infringement ......

This is just more bungling out of Redmond on top of their already dismal performance last year.

Microsoft likely had two choices: a. further delay shipment and release to the public until they had sufficient quantities of the Surface Pro to meet initial demand, or b. ship in lower-than-optimal quantities. Because the initial release was already delayed and roundly criticized, Microsoft decided on option b.
This strategy had the additional benefit of hyping demand and keeping the name of the product in the news.

The statement about shipping more to the Microsoft Store online appears to be a complete fabrication. Even saying they made it available by Saturday is stretching the truth quite a bit.

Maybe their performance wouldn't be so abysmal if they shipped the correct amount in the first place, and made the product available. Maybe the Surface RT sales would be rather decent in the event that they stocked the shelves from day one so everyone who was interested in one could get one, and then show it off to their friends and so forth.
