Hi

Microsoft announced that its new windows release will be available in three editions; these three editions are Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, and Windows RT.

Windows 8 is supposed to be the successor of Windows 7 in its Basic and Home Premium editions.

Windows 8 Pro is the successor of both Windows 7 Professional edition windows 7 Ultimate edition.

However,Windows RT will be available only on ARM hardware as pre-installed OS.

Windows 8 and Windows RT have almost the same feature, whereas Windows RT includes in Extra: Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote preinstalled and includes full-device encryption. For its side Windows 8 supports existing x86 and x64 applications, Storage Spaces, and a pre-equipped with Windows Media Player.

For Web connected apps, Windows 8 Pro should be the more suitable.
