      I agree. But if Microsoft continues the way it does….in a couple of years the real Windows will become a “one billion” business.

        What do you mean by “the real Windows” ?

          It means that if they can’t get their “sh** together with mobile, then in a few years the PC business shrinks and Microsoft is left in the dust.

      Windows Phone will be discontinued. There is no reason to have separate Windows Phone and RT, cellular features can be incorporated in RT and have the Windows Phone or similar GUI and run all the same apps.

        So windows rt will be on phones? Is that what your saying? Doesn’t windows phone and windows share a kernal?? If windows phone is killed, is rt able to support and expand on future hardware at a faster pace??
