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.

OS X can run on any modern Intel equipment. Case in point I'm running Lion right now as I post this. It does NOT have to be on Apple HW, just Intel. I wanted a OS X box that sadly Apple either doesn't want to sell or is phasing out so I built my own. Whether that's legal or not I don't care, I have what I wanted. Plus my point is that OS X will run on other HW other than strictly Apple's.
