quote: It is popular to try to find a hidden meaning, but Microsoft's official announcements were pretty clear ... RT means RT.
quote: Half the people call it Windows 8 RT, and the other half Windows RT. And NOBODY knows what RT even means lol
quote: Yes I know but how does "Run Time" signify some type of tablet activity or mobile device to the average consumer? Which was my point!
quote: RT doesn't mean ANYTHING to the consumer, and "Run Time" doesn't align itself to any product. It's shockingly bad that Microsoft went forward with an OS name that so poorly identifies with anything tangible. Stop trying to impress people with your trivial knowledge of acronyms and understand the context here, please.
