Windows RT's on-screen keyboard is disappointing. The numeral-symbol keyboard layout is non-standard, so if, for example, your password is moderately strong with characters, numerals, and symbols, it requires a lot of visual keyboard switching just to log in. Another problem I noticed is that text windows in Internet Explorer do not adjust for the on-screen keyboard. This can leave nearly half the display unusable when you're typing. In the screenshot above you can see that Microsoft's own Word Web App in SkyDrive on IE for RT is unusable because of this onscreen keyboard problem.
