Windows RT or Windows RunTime and also known as Windows on ARM or WOA is the newest product of Windows. It can run applications that are powered by ARM processors and will be pre-installed in personal computers and tablets. Windows RT has new and improved versions of Microsoft Office package (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint) and OneNote.

The focus of Windows RT is the web-connected applications of all kinds. In spite of these awesome features the Windows RT has, Windows 8 seems to be a great hit in the market once it is launched. It is for tech enthusiasts and business people. The feature includes Microsoft Office package, updated Windows Explorer, Task Manager, improves multi-monitor support, and has the skill to change dialects. Also, it has features on virtualization, management of PC, file encryption and domain connectivity.

So, if you want your PC in your business environment, you would want to choose Windows 8 over Windows RT simply because it is an economical media pack.

Microsoft already revealed the names of the next Windows versions and one of them is called Windows RT. It is the official name for Microsoft’s Windows On ARM. It's a new version of Windows designed to run on low-powered ARM processors, which are used in a lot of tablets today [including the iPad] because they offer longer battery life than the Intel-type processors used in traditional PCs.

The word “RT” in its name stands for “Runtime” and also refers to WinRT which is the Windows Runtime Library. It's actually quite a tricky and important bit of technology, because it allows developers to write one application that runs on both Windows 8 [which uses Intel-type processors] and Windows RT [which uses ARM]. Without it, developers would have to do extra work to get their applications to run on each platform. For more information about this, you may visit What Is Windows RT?
