Windows on ARMMicrosoft could struggle to sell Windows RT into enterprises, if the opinions on a recent customer panel are anything to go by.

The event, held by Microsoft to promote Windows 8's suitability for enterprises, featured a number of customers on its First Wave early adoption program. While the customers - BT, Poste Italiane and the Dutch Public Prosecution Service - were enthusiastic about Windows 8, Windows RT was not similarly welcomed.

Windows RT is a version of the new operating system that is designed to run on ARM devices, such as Microsoft's Surface tablet. It will run apps from Microsoft's Windows store, such as Office, but will not natively run applications that currently run on Windows 7, unlike Windows 8 does.
