If you have an ARM tablet running Windows RT, (like the Microsoft Surface tablet,) you already know that you're restricted to applications that Microsoft has approved and added to the Windows Store.
For the first time ever, a Windows RT build has leaked online. This is the upcoming Windows 8.1 RTM build, 6.3.9600.16384.WINBLUE. Microsoft has already made an announcement that they are rolling out Windows 8.1 to both ARM and x86/x64 PCs in October. If you are so eager to try it out before that, you can download it from torrent sites. As expected, this build comes with Office 2013 pre-installed which will also include new Outlook 2013 RT.
But as always, there is a risk associated with it. So, do at your own risk!
- Is there a python ide for Windows RT? Or is there a way to download 3rd party IDEs that can work on RT? There is one in the market place called 'Python 3 for Metro' but it is nothing like the IDE I use on my desktop called 'PyScripter'.
- Some felt that Windows RT devices had advantages over other mobile platforms (such as iOS or Android) because of its bundled software and the ability to use a wider variety of USB peripherals and accessories, but the platform was criticized for its poor software ecosystem, citing the early stage of Windows Store and its incompatibility with existing Windows software, and other limitations over Windows 8. Critics and analysts deemed Windows RT to be commercially unsuccessful, citing these.
