  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft is investigating the Windows RT jailbreak software, but that doesn't mean that software developers won't recompile more applications to work on the tablet-oriented operating system.

  • Windows on ARMThe jailbreak community is once again lending a hand to users who wish to run old Macintosh software on their Windows RT tablet, be it Microsoft Surface or any other device equipped with this special version of the Windows 8 OS.

  • Windows on ARMThe Surface RT comes in two different models, a 32GB and a 64GB variant with a $100 price difference between them.  You might have noticed that the Surface also includes a micro SD card slot on it and many of you might have figured that you can install your apps and videos and such on to your SD card and save some money since a 64GB SD Card is only $50.

  • Windows on ARMUntil now, I've concentrated on features of the Windows Surface RT that ease the transition from desktop Windows 7 to the new Windows 8. These include Office; the desktop; programs like Internet Explorer, NotePad, and Paint; and the Ease of Access features. Now that I've had the Surface for over a month, it's time to look at the new Windows 8 apps that I use regularly. Let's start with the new Start screen browser.

  • Windows on ARMIf you work with multiple computers and devices, and especially if you collaborate with other writers, then the combination of SkyDrive and Office 2013 is fantastic. Got an email with an attached document or some notes you've started making? Save the file on SkyDrive (you can even do that from your phone in some cases); not only can you open it in Word on your PC and carry on working, but it will appear in the recent documents list on the File menu in Office 2013 so it's easy to find.

Therefore, if you are buying a Microsoft Surface and intend to install all your favorite Windows programs, then you're going to have a bad time.

  • Windows on ARMEven though the Windows Store is constantly growing bigger, there's no BitTorrent client available for Windows RT users who wish to download files via this high-speed protocol.

  • Windows on ARMJust recently, we learned about a way to run non-Windows Store apps on a Windows RT device via a circumvention method that requires tinkering with the portion of the RAM that instructs Windows RT on whether it should run unsigned code or signed code.

  • Windows on ARMAs far back as I can remember the differences between the full version of Windows 8 and the tablet version, now dubbed Windows RT, were made pretty clear. Whilst the Modern UI section of them was going to be essentially identical the full version of Windows wasn't going to run on anything that wasn't x86 compatible and RT would be the version that could run on low power systems like ARM.

  • Windows on ARMA security expert has already managed to bypass Microsoft's restrictions to find a way to run unsigned desktop apps on Windows RT, so the jailbreak community has started work on developing new ways to make the most of this exploit.

VideoLAN developers have already confirmed that a Windows RT version is also in the works, but it appears that some members of the team find such a project a waste of time.
