    Can the Surface RT run any Windows 8 apps, or just ones optimized for RT?

    Is the Windows App Store the same for all windows 8 devices?

    Thanks.

    RT can run the apps compiled for the ARM processor. Some of the apps in the app store have not been compiled for the ARM so dont show up when you log in from an RT device.

    The App store is the same in theory..
