Top 10 Reasons Why Windows RT Sucks

Despite of the growing success of Windows 8, Microsoft is being talked about for its another operating system Windows RT which is designed for Microsoft’s another exciting produce Surface tablet. The Windows RT is said to have similar UI features and is somewhat similar to Windows Lite. Windows RT can be seen as Microsoft’s way to develop a controlled environment like Apple’s iOS as it has some big pitfalls that diminish the excitement. Let us share top 10 biggest flaws of Windows RT.

1) Incompatibility With Previous Apps:
If you think, you can enjoy your previous Windows versioned apps on Surface then you might have to clear up your mind on this. Windows RT is not compatible enough to support former apps of Windows.

2) Say Goodbye To Previous Programs:
Other than previous apps and older edition of games, Windows RT fails to support some of the major Windows programs such as MS Outlook and Windows Media Player.

3) Limited Support For Flash:
One can get stunned on this one! Flash is supported for only some of the sites approved by Microsoft.

4) Lack Of Windows RT Devices:
Windows RT is hardly being accompanied by the electronic vendors. Dell, Samsung, Asus and Lenovo are the four companies that have planned to roll out their devices with this new release by Microsoft.

5) Limited Number Of Apps:
Thou, Microsoft have claimed that it expects about more than 100,000 apps by the end of January on Windows Store, but it seems that users won’t want to wait that long.

6) Less Attractive To Business-Class Users:
Corporate people who wish to buy Surface, thinking it would add an extra oomph to their style, they would have to change up their minds as RT has been licensed for home and student use only. Therefore, you need to buy a commercial license to use Windows RT's Office apps for work.

7) Controlled App Purchasing:
Windows RT doesn’t support apps that are bought from stores other than Windows Store. This reminds me of the same limitation as Apple provides to its users, however, Google has been seem to be generous and has allowed Android to allow purchasing of apps other than Google’s Play store.

8) No More Intel Inside!
Windows RT is only compatible with Qualcomm, Nvidia or Texas devices.

9) Pointless Explanations From Microsoft:
Microsoft has been failed to highlight major differences between Windows 8 and RT and it seems that users would want to buy the product just to check the missing elements of Windows 8.

10) Restricted To Pre-Installed Apps:
Some of the useful apps such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel and One Note come as pre-installed by Windows RT which restricts the users who don’t want these apps.

Knowing about these flaws doesn’t mean that Windows RT is not worth getting acclaimed. One can simply expect from Microsoft to polish it up for its fans.

Top 10 Windows 8 Features That iPad Doesn't Have
Top 10 Windows 8 Apps, Let's Give Them A Try


  1. I'm not sure those reasons make it "suck." It's just different. Think of it like the ipad is to the OSX. OSX programs don't run on the ipad. The ipad deosn't have intel. The ipad has even fewer hardware choices and everything must go through the app store.

    If you want to run Win7 programs... If you want intel... If you want a endless array of devices... Then don't buy Win RT. Buy a Win 8 Pro device. It's as simple as that.

  2. MS Surface x86 with Linux Ubuntu = Pure awesomeness

  3. I got a tab with windows rt on it ... Sucks big ol donkey a.. and why is it ok for a company to think that we all want another store to go to o and it gets better pay more for apps that on Google play are free or 1.99

  4. Yup I got a rt tablet and it sucks. Better with a win 8 device or anything else... windows apps store sucks big time...

  5. The Microsoft Windows Surface is a piece of crap. Nothing works. The web browser sucks because it is always is freezing. do not buy this. it sucks.

  6. I have a Asus VivoTab....believe me, Windows 8 RT SUCKS!....It is SOooo limited, it's a good thing I have Netflix....THAT it does well.
