Still don't see the issue. It's not like you'll have RT on your next desktop computer. It's for tablets and phones. Doesn't seem that much different than the current setup to me?

Right. :roll:

It's just another option. I do different things on my desktop, ipad, iphone, and laptop. I don't have 1 device that does everything. The closest might be my laptop.
