    Wondows RT and Windows 8 one and the same

    Windows RT is a clean port of Windows 8. They are the same thing and MSFT enforces Code Integrity to artificially separate these platforms.

    The decision to ban traditional desktop applications was not a technical one, but a bad marketing decision. Windows RT needs the Win32 ecosystem to strengthen its position as a productivity tool. There are enough “consumption” tablets already.

    The next question is, how to build and/or compile Windows ARM desktop apps? If simply a recompile of a .Net application is all that is needed (I doubt this, but it may be possible), MS would be insane to not allow developers to utilize the RT desktop.
