  4. This opens up a very large can of worms....
  5. The tech demo they're showing off on Windows RT is Epic Citadel which came out on the iPad back in September, 2010. So Windows RT getting something that's been on the iPad for two years makes it better?

  7. iPad sucks compared to Windows 8 (RT, PC, Xbox?, Phone?) mainly because people can use C++, Javascript, C# VB to make Windows 8 apps and run it on those hardware. Instead of using stupid Objective C. Enough said.

This means not only developers will better optimize their games for ARM (as opposed to the inefficient iterations found in Android and iOS), but their games will look significantly better too.

    This is kind of a big deal.
