Windows RT brings Microsoft's latest desktop operating system off of x86 and onto ARM, meaning it's perfectly suited for tablets thanks to the low power drain and low heat generated by systems running on ARM processors. Windows RT isn't the same as Windows 8, however: it's focused on the Metro environment, and the only desktop apps to run on it is a bundled version of Microsoft Office. Keep it tuned here for the latest updates on Microsoft's ARM-friendly OS and the new tablets and convertibles as they come in.
