Windows RT Gets The Coup de Grace

We knew that Windows RT was a dead man walking and now Microsoft have despatched its unloved platform for ARM tablets by cutting off its supply of future apps.

The news comes as part of Microsoft release information for Update 3 - the RT version that will bring an updated Start screen. Microsoft confirms that RT users will not benefit from Universal apps, even though they will run on the similarly ARM powered Windows 10 Mobile devices.

Windows RT users (and to be fair there aren't a lot of them out there) have been hard done by here. I've said before that Microsoft needs to offer them a path to a new Windows device - especially those who own Surface RT and Surface 2 devices.
