Windows While I was fast asleep, Microsoft unveiled the SKUs for Windows 8 - and we're in for a surprise. Yes, after years and years of fully deserved mockery for releasing 343 versions of each Windows release, the company has seen the light and reduced everything to just four - of which only two, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro, will be freely available in stores.

People who may well have bought copies of Windows 8 for their ARM machines will be forced into a life of crime.

What ARM machines? ARM devices aren't freely available. The ones that are available are the iOS & Android devices, and although they may have also use ARM, the hardware will probably be very different from what Windows RT supports (which I expect will be only selected SOCs like Windows Phone).

Piracy is not gonna be easy, since the only devices that will run Windows RT properly will already come with Windows RT preinstalled!
