Windows After ditching its Windows RT tablets from the US market, Samsung has now also confirmed to Heise.de it's going to stop selling them in Germany and several other European countries. The company cites lack of interest from consumers and confusion over what Windows RT is. Combined with the massive discounts Microsoft is now giving to OEMs, the writing is on the wall here: Windows 8 - specifically on tablets but also in general - is turning into a failure.

They would have called an Android/Linux based OS "Windows X" everybody would have assumed that since there is a "Windows" in it, it could runs "Windows" program.

Nailed it ! Windows RT is 100% unable to run legacy Windows program ? Windows 95 was able, Windows NT was able, Windows XP was able, and now Windows RT cannot ? Where it is EXPLICITLY mentioned for the average Joe ?
