Simply put can someone tell me the differences between windows phone 8, windows rt and windows 8. I know this so far:
- Windows 8 Pro runs legacy software and will only run on intel based hardware, basically a regular desktop OS with metro UI
- WindowsRT is only for tablets with desktop mode only for IE and Office
- Windows phone 8 is again different than Windows RT but looks like it?
I was under the impression all versions were basically the same, but lacking legacy support in RT and Windows rt being exactly the same as windows phone 8 but that doesn't seem to be the case. I was hoping to dual boot windows 8 on my machine and get the surface RT version and a Lumia 920 but that was mainly due to having a consistent experience and the same windows store apps being available across all devices. So if I were to buy Angry birds on my phone, i would have it across my surface and desktop with saves all synced and what not. Much like how Apple has it with the iPhone, iPad, and macs.
