Windows So, a rudimentary jailbreak for Windows RT made its way onto the web these past few days. Open source applications were ported right away, and it was confirmed that Windows RT is the full Windows - it's exactly the same as regular Windows, except that it runs on ARM. Microsoft responded to the jailbreak as well.

the whole same-experience-on-all-platforms thing.


Alas, is that really a good thing? As it stands, the platforms are wildly differing in specs and therefore you're limiting yourself on how you can present yourself to the end-user and how the end-user can interact with you. Personally I don't view it as a positive thing; Metro is way, way too limited on an actual PC and one has to interact with it by emulating touch-screen gestures -- I do not view a unified experience worth the losses in ease-of-use and features.
