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.

Microsoft has a three good things going for it that Apple (and Android) doesn't: OEM relationships in the PC space, Enterprise support/integration in the PC space, and size in the PC space.


There, fixed.

Otherwise 2 out of 3 do not apply for the mobile/low power space: Apple is arguably larger than MS from a valuation standpoint, and Google has far more traction with Phone/Tablet OEMs.

Microsoft still has the enterprise market, which is a nice chunk... but it's hurting for growth.
