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.

Or you can just press ALT+TAB, like we have done since.....Windows 95 at least.

I really loved the way Windows 7 added "pin to left/right 50%" and I also don't like how apps works on big screens (the 25%/75% is useless to me). But the above is just misinformation
