Editor in Chief

Today at the renewed Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) summit in Shenzhen, China, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 will be available this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages. We already know that Windows 10 is a free upgrade to hundreds of millions of customers running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

All ... even *pirated* BUT NOT Windows RT even though they are offering Win 10 on ARM devices AND Upgrade ROMS for Xiaomi Android devices and probably others too. I get it all your developers are busy making software for iOS and Android you just don't give a rats tail about WinRT customers. This is purely a marketing decision and it's a bad one. There's not even that much additional work needed to make an RT release given all the other work already done. Id suggest a revolt and demand an early 2016 WinRT release or sue for one, sometimes you just have to smack them up side the head.
