Windows "There may be a time in the future when all the bugs have been fixed, the third-party app support has arrived, and some very smart engineers in Redmond have ironed out the physical kinks in this type of product which prevent it from being all that it can be.

I wouldn't be surprised if Windows RT got a real native compiler at some point, but until then its still possible.
