    I know right now the only desktop program is Office 13, but do you think that Microsoft will release more programs or let developers make programs that run on the desktop in the future? Just because Windows RT is focused on metro and runs ARM doesn't mean devs couldnt write programs for the desktop.

    I would say the odds are less than 50/50. It isn't that it can't be done but MS has expressed that they don't want it done. They could always change their mind but more than likely desktop will go away in Windows 9RT and they won't want to support a new legacy branch.
