    Since Microsoft has never officially stated what the "RT" in Windows RT stands for let's see if we can guess what it means. Post your guesses below!

    A couple to get started.

    Windows RT:

    RunTime
    ReleaseTwo
    RegularTablets

    As far as I am led to believe It’s named after the WinRT (Windows RunTime) development subsystem in Windows 8 that enables Metro apps.

    Shouldn't there be a separate RT forum? Down the road, that will avoid confusion with the version of Surface that comes with Windows 8 Pro. RT is not Windows 8, it's very similar, but it is a different OS.

    Technically you are correct but at the moment only the Surface RT is out so we don't have a split just yet. Really we should have Surface RT forum and Surface Pro forum and the OS specific issues can be addressed under the appropriate device.
