Windows RT is a nonsense

The WikiP page explains that RT means "Runtime" but not to be confused with Windows Runtime.

The reason for this post was my disgust with the nonsense in the article "Qualcomm bets on Windows RT tablets and hybrids"  by John Morris & Sean Portnoy,  ZDNet  30 June 2012

I really don't think that the "kit" buying public will "get it" - A Windows device is going to be perceived as one that runs Windows applications, when it is discovered that RT is just a touch-centric tablet/phone o/s a lot of people are going to be disappointed.

  • A ZDNet article - the original article that spawned this post seems to have been pulled?
