John Moltz on the Death of Windows RT

John Moltz, writing on his very nice website:

The move makes sense — no point in beating this dead horse — but it’s too bad Microsoft wasn’t able to make a platform that allowed it to jettison some legacy overhead.

That about sums it up. This move means Microsoft has firmly hitched it's cart to the Intel horse for their tablets which comes with some significant drawbacks and chains them to an awful lot of baggage that they've buult up over the years.

Oh, just to be clear we're talking about this Windows RT, not this Windows RT. Top notch naming there, Microsoft.
