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.

As for running 'classic' desktop apps on a tablet, even if I COULD do this, would I really want to? I usually don't walk around with a keyboard and mouse in my back pocket ;)



Why not, when this is available? http://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-Handheld-Keyboard-Multi-Touchpad-Po...

I have one for my Raspberry Pi and it works amazingly well. So far I've only had to charge it twice in three weeks, including the initial charge, and the laser pointer is fun for messing with my fiancee's dog.

They also make a USB wireless version for use with computers without Bluetooth, though this one does come with a Bluetooth dongle as a nice bonus.
