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.

I think that times are changing. The mouse will augment the touch experience instead of touch augmenting the mouse experience, in pretty short order.

OEMs are finally getting around to less brainddead form factors and I think there's a shift in how people use their devices occurring.

Intel will in the near future require all devices bearing the Ultrabook name to support things like Touch, NFC, and other sensors + protocols. The difference between our traditional devices and our mobile devices are becoming less pronounced.

Add to that the fact that Intel continues to aggressively push into ultra low power, even with their Core series, and you start to get a compelling story for pushing for a unified ecosystem.

Metro and the WinRT will evolve. I'm sure it will contain a bunch of Mouse and Keyboard specific improvements and some more flexibility in the near future.
