    Microsoft to merge Windows RT into next-generation Windows


    Microsoft will no longer launch products under its Windows RT line and will instead merge the product line into the software giant's next-generation Windows, codenamed Blue, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

    Hopefully they'll do that by ultimately allowing the windowizing of apps on workstations, like a certain add-on :>. Allow people to pin apps to the taskbar and heck... put a button at the lower left that launches the Start Menu :>. Then launch to the deskstop, and if you want to view an app in the full screen format, you can just hit the maximize button.

    Then the workstation and desktop would be able to manage all those girly-man apps like a pro. As it should be.
