In a video titled, “Windows RT Needs to Die“, Motley Fool contributor Steve Heller explains why the Windows RT platform needs to be abandoned and why Microsoft should focus on Windows 8 Tablets instead. He points to low sales of Windows RT devices, the confusion the confusion these devices create in the market place, and upcoming Intel hardware that will allow Windows 8 Tablets to compete directly with Windows RT devices. I tend to agree with Steve. I generally recommend a low end Windows 8 Tablet over any Windows RT device due to the compatibility with legacy Windows Applications. I feel that OEMs will figure out how to make Windows 8 Tablets that will compete with the iPad and top Google Android Tablets in terms of both price and in performance. Once that happens, Windows RT will surely die.
