Windows 8 is only a few months away with Microsoft aiming for an autumn 2012 release. They recently announced on the Indows Team Blog that there will be three editions or “flavors” if you will of the upcoming Windows 8 operatiing system. They are Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro and… Windows RT, really… Windows RT? when I first read the name I thought Windows RT didn’t seem to mesh well with the other names and it seems I was not alone as the interwebs is now buzzing with discussions related to Micirisofts choice of Using Windows RT.
Windows RT is designed for ARM-designed chips (tablets) while Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro are for Intel based chips. Excerpt of the blogpost on the Windows team blog below. Read the full post as well as the details and differences between the different versions of Windows 8 – Announcing the Windows 8 Editions.
Windows 8 has the flexibility you need – whether you’re on an x86/64 or a WOA PC. You can use a touch screen or a keyboard and mouse – and switch anytime. It’s beautiful, fast, and fluid design is perfect for a wide range of hardware. And you’ll love browsing through the Windows Store and downloading all the apps you want. And those apps can work together too so you can share photos, maps, contacts, links and whatever else you want faster and easier. All editions of Windows 8 offer a no-compromise experience.
