I had been running Windows 8 on an ultrabook and was not impressed and worried about the success of Windows 8, but after getting the Surface tablet (which I thought was a great take on the tablet) yesterday I ended up upgrading all of my PCs and having another look at RT development.

The development in VS 2012 for RT is actually pretty amazing, after installing 2012 on my laptop and the Remote Debugging Application on the Surface, I am able to deploy, run and debug my applications on the Surface over Wi-Fi.

I was also disappointed in not having the Surface Pro available, but after using the RT version and seeing how well it works and integrates with other devices I will probably stick with RT for my tablet and leave Pro for PCs and laptops.
