Discussion:  On October 26, Microsoft released its totally redesigned, touch-enabled, Windows 8.  The new operating systems is a departure from its 3-decade-old PC operating systems in that it (among other things) is completely touch-enabled, and features a start screen as opposed to a start button, while still supporting legacy versions of Windows.  Windows RT does not support older versions of Windows, but runs on a whole batch of new mobile devices.  Both Windows 8 and Windows RT will run the new brand of Start Apps, which will likely become the new standard form of Windows app going forward.
