Windows on ARMIn many ways, Microsoft's Surface 2 was the company's big chance to prove that Windows RT deserves its place in the world. Has it taken it? Well, sort of. Let's face it: Surface RT and other Windows RT devices have been up against it for some time now, and for good reason.

They can't run legacy Windows programs, which is a valid concern considering the Windows Store is lacking a whole heap of apps from big name developers.

For this reason, Microsoft has always had a hard time convincing people that the Surface RT is worth the investment - particularly in the face of the Surface Pro that can run full-fat Windows 8 apps and looks almost exactly the same on the outside.
