Windows RT is the locked-down version of Windows 8 for ARM computers, as seen on Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet and other Windows RT devices. Windows RT doesn’t allow you to install your own desktop programs. You’re limited to the included desktop programs written by Microsoft or Modern apps from the Windows Store. However, there are ways to jailbreak your Windows RT device and run unapproved software on the desktop. These tricks are for the geeks who want to make their Surface do more than what it was designed to do.
Spotify and Rdio head to head, Microsoft considers offering Windows RT and Windows Phone for free, Yahoo Mail fails, GTA: San Andreas for mobile, YouTube cracks down on gaming videos, Facebook adds autoplay, Viber 4.1 released.
Guess what? The Windows 8 App Store actually has some great official apps. It’s just that nobody knows they’re there. We’re here to fix that – for you at least.
