We’ll discuss some of these differences later in the chapter, but the big picture goes like this: Windows RT is a new, unproven product. It runs only on ARM-based platforms that could enable thinner and lighter iPad-like tablets that may get better battery life than Intel-compatible products. ) Windows RT is roughly comparable to the base version of Windows 8, but is lacking one very critical feature: It is not compatible with any existing Windows applications or utilities. And it’s missing two interesting and potentially useful features, Windows Media Player and Storage Spaces.
