re: Windows 8 Vs. Windows RT: 8 Key Differences
Windows 8/RT will help keep Microsoft relevant in the growing tablet market. We've seen the shift more pronounced in the last 18 months in more clients using Apple based devices and not strictly Microsoft. Questions? Contact me online at http://wwww.richmondcomputer.c...

re: Windows 8 Vs. Windows RT: 8 Key Differences
LOL @ "I think they're going to drop to 50% or less of the operating systems used for work" - This guy is off his rocker! Microsoft will not be losing OS space in the workplace. The dip in computer sales has been in the consumer marketplace, not the work marketplace. Everything else this guys says means nothing to me now.

re: Windows 8 Vs. Windows RT: 8 Key Differences
1. MS Windows Applications are getting better, but still have the same old Microsoft character of having random lock ups / reboots. I am not convinced on the reliability for the mobile / tablet market.
2. Windows from a security standpoint is always on the bullG«÷s eye list of hackers wanting to steal private information.
3. Why would Microsoft want to lose 50% of the business market for operating sales? This is the bread and butter of Microsoft. Is there something along the horizon that is better? and has not hit the media yet? Possible Cloud computing by 3rd party vendors? Still with the cloud someone else is managing security. I doubt that businesses with rush toward it unless they themselves have security control over their data.
4. The tablet seems like it does not offer much more than the competition. Why pick a Microsoft tablet over an android? or Linux OS? These seem very fast and stable. MS will have to get whistles and bells that WOW the market to survive here. AllG«™.. Just my opinion.

It looks far too much like iPad or iPhone to me - Microsoft should sue Apple!

Well, tech marketer you must be a lucky guy.
You got virtual desktop, and all the Operating Systems existing.
I imagine how you change them every 3 minutes and this makes your life more more easier and relaxing.
Congrats.

While the nuggets of data were good - the formatting of this slideshow was the WORST I've EVER seen! The editor who approved this needs to be slapped and forced through this a few times - may he/she will learn to not waste our time and alienate their base that way.

re: Windows 8 Vs. Windows RT: 8 Key Differences
1. Lack of journalistic integrity by failure to do fact checking
2. "Windows RT" is a presentation interface like Cocoa for IOS or "Java" (the Java Micro Edition clone used by Google) used in Android. (Windows Presentation Foundation, used in older Windows versions, now includes Windows 8.) Its like using a different window manager in Unix.

3. Windows RT is designed to run atop BREW, Symbian(?), other OS providing user mode functionality only, no Windows kernel functions.
