Windows The Verge published a video demonstrating how desktop mode and Office 2013 - a desktop application - work on Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8. The video showed a desktop mode that clearly didn't work well for touch, and even Office 2013, which has a rudimentary touch mode built-in, didn't work properly either. It looked and felt clunky, often didn't respond properly, and even showed touch lag.

I think enterprises are much more interested in full Windows 8 tablets because of the superior enterprise management capabilities.

How is enterprise management IPad support looking right now? What actual advantages can MS have in real world scenarios?

Joining an NT domain and understanding domain policies. Even if iPads match the configurability of NT (and I doubt they do just yet) an NT tablet can just be dropped into the existing infrastructure.
