Windows on ARMReports from earlier in the week suggested that Windows RT had been "jailbroken" by hackers, an event I ignored because the outcome was so obvious. And, as expected, Microsoft has confirmed the hack and will simply fix it in a pending update. But why does everyone take this stuff so seriously?


The issue is that Windows RT is essentially a sealed environment, like the iPad, where users cannot install apps willy-nilly as they can on traditional Windows versions, but can instead only select trusted and tested apps, in this case from the Windows Store. While power user will bristle at this limitation, it's arguably one of Windows RT's biggest strengths, since it helps bolster consumer confidence in the platform.
