Windows RT Not Going to Die Soon, Former Windows Boss Says

Windows on ARMSeveral device manufacturers around the world have already criticized Windows RT and even abandoned it completely, deciding to stick to the full version of Windows 8 to provide support for traditional software to buyers.

Recently, Julie Larson-Green, Microsoft’s former Windows boss who’s now taking over a new role within the company, hinted that Windows RT and Windows Phone could merge very soon, most likely because the tablet-oriented operating system isn’t quite a successful product right now.

“Terry Myerson and the OS group are really looking at how we make sure we've got a world-class mobile operating system moving forward, and what will that mean for our tablet and mobile strategy. I think there's a lot of opportunities to do some things there that take that forward in an interesting way,” she recently said during the Goldman Sachs tech conference.
