The Surface Pro can as it is just a standard PC. Surface RT on the other hand will never be able to run SIMS.net unless Capita make a web-based alternative (SLG doesn't count ).

Which Version of the Surface?
If it is the RT version (I.e arm based one) then no it wouldn't - the Pro version should.

SIMS isnt supported on Windows 8 yet. Although it isnt support it might still work.

you could probably publish it as an rdp app to a surface

I'm currently running SIMS on a Windows 8 Machine (Enterprise) and I would love to say its completely bug free, but no- it's not.
There are a few funny issues when updating SIMS on a Windows 8 Machine, If i had to rely on it 100% - I wouldn't.

Have it running as a remote App through HAP+ on my surface RT, but thats as close as you'll get.

So I guess you could use the solutions provided on any tablet platform and save money?
