Windows RT was previously known as Windows 8 for ARM. AMD's absent because it doesn't produce any ARM processors. Intel's absent, too. As far as I'm aware, Nokia's not involved either (although they, at least, use ARM processors.)

The Trinity APU is not an ARM SoC. AMD does not make a single ARM processor. (Nvidia, incidentally, does: the Tegra family.)

What you've linked to are Windows 8 tablets. If you'd care to read the article - in fact, if you'd just like to glance at the title - you'd see that we're discussing Windows RT tablets.

AMD is not launching a single Windows RT tablet. It can't: it doesn't have an ARM SoC. Go ahead, search for it: if you can find an AMD device running Windows RT, I'll give you my next six paycheques.

Windows RT != Windows 8. That's why it's called Windows RT, and not Windows 8. It's a *version* of Windows 8, sure, but one with significantly stricter licensing restrictions and no retail release. It also only runs on ARM architecture chips, meaning that it absolutely will not run under any circumstances (processor emulation via something like qemu aside) on any AMD processor.

Clearer now?

My intention was not to be rude, but merely to educate: you were clearly confused between Windows 8 and Windows RT (which isn't surprising, given that Microsoft only recently renamed "Windows 8 on ARM" to "Windows RT") and I was trying to clarify things for you.

I wonder if we can expect a reaction from HTC, something like "fine, then we are ceasing production of all our phones with Windows Phone 7".

I agree. I've gotten into disagreements with Gareth more than once and I don't find him rude, when he easily could have been. If you say something wrong, expect to be corrected, don't whine about it.

Does RT somehow rhyme with "real ****" or something ... because that's precisely what it's turning out to be - a bootloader-locked, dumb-down and stupid=looking version of Windows port that nobody in their right mind is going to purchase willingly. Sure, people will get shafted with it as they go for ARMish usable tablet wannabes only to find out they wasted their money on yet another incarnation of certain fruit's company iSlate ... great for gloating in front of your buddies who don't own this POS for all four seconds until they realise neither they nor you have any real use for it.

Windows for ReTards won't run any x86 code, won't have majority of existing x86 code ported over in sptite of M$'s efforts (.Net and other related retarded utils/compilers which slow down software immensely just to maintain compatibily with some lame portable framework) and won't look any better than a steaming pile of dog poop thanks to morons who came up with the metrosexual GUI and the daltonist-unfriendly color scheme (I bet the author of this piece of **** was color blind but couldn't get himself to acknowledge the fact ... so I woukdn't be too surprised to learn that he was an undercover fag as well).

Either way, I wish all the fails to retards at M$, they deserve them ! Phucking morons ...
