'Microsoft's most boneheaded product is about to be killed off'
And we thought it was just Windows 8 that was unpopular.....Now comes word that Microsoft is dumping Windows RT after a $900 Million write off last year (according to the article). People would complain that Linux could not run everything, well according to the article neither could Windows RT! http://money.cnn.com/2014/07/23/technology/enterprise/microsoft-windows-rt/"The biggest failure of Windows RT was that it took away the single best part of Windows -- the fact that it can run just about every app ever created. " "Instead, Windows RT can only run apps built for the Windows Store. You know those strange-looking tile apps in Windows 8? Yup, those are the ones." "Still, you can't run iTunes. There's no Chrome or Firefox browser. You likely can't run your company's custom-built software. Pretty much anything that requires a desktop is a no-go.
OK, so that sounds kind of like an iPad or a Chromebook laptop, right? Sure it does -- so why not just buy an iPad for the same price? Or save $150 and buy a Chromebook? That's what most consumers were thinking anyway. "
