@Arthur they should've released the Surface RT with full enterprise management features i.e. domain join, SCCM management (not InTune, come on do you really want another management platform having set up System Center?!) etc not the ridiculous cut down "home use only" experience MS have forced solely to extract more $$$ for the Surface Pro. In the meantime the lack of decent Win8 hardware must have Apple doing the happy dance as they ponder iPad4.
Probably too late now but an RT for £400 that could work as a standard domain machine but only run Metro apps + Office would've sold like hot cakes. Would also have kept people on the better Metro tablet experience as their first look at Win8 rather than concentrating on how irritating it is to use in Desktop mode. On a tablet it's a much better proposition and may have helped offset the negativity around the ropey desktop user experience.
Instead RT is looking like a white elephant that's neither here nor there.
I think it's fair to say you're probably the most clued up on here when it comes to Win8 so if you can give me a technical reason why an RT can't be an enterprise machine I'm all ears. Seeing as MS have managed to port the whole of the OS and Office 2013 to ARM I doubt that's the reason somehow so what else can it be apart from profit margins?
