    Win8 + Windows RT + WinRT = mass confusion


    By Woody Leonhard

    As Windows 8 approaches liftoff, a lot of people seem very confused about differences between Windows 8, Windows RT, and WinRT.

    Here's your quick-reference guide to the new nomenclature.

    If that post is a serious question, look all over the Web at the videos of Windows 8 tablets. All that Metro full-screen stuff is mostly Metro Apps. They are applications ported to the Windows 8 (RT) Tablet API. Which I gather from Woody's article, is called WinRT. Did I get that right, Woody?

    I can see now I will never advance to Windows 8. Too complicated for me.
