Will I regret replacing my laptop with a Surface?

Howdy,

So my laptop recently got stolen so I'm looking to replace it. I figured I might get a Surface(not pro) now to a) save money, and b) it's awesome. I have a few questions:

Is there any possible way to get Silverlight content to work? Some jailbreak thingy or something.

Can I download stuff via torrents?

Can I open *.rdp to remote connect to computers? Thanks in advance!
