Windows "According to an inside source, a session was held at Microsoft's recent TechReady15 conference in which all the launch details were laid out. If things go according to the plan detailed then, the Surface for Windows RT tablet will be launching October 26th - no surprise there - at a compelling price of $199." My wallet just squealed in pure bliss.

You can only install Microsoft-approved apps, and only via their Store. You can not run anything else (e.g. Linux) on it.

(Not that these matter to 90% of the people)

And 90% might be an understatement... (though, OTOH - piracy?)

But anyway, IIRC corporates can do more, can set up their internal distribution "store" - so that likely covers most of the needs (at least that of large, important(tm) customers)
