Use Windows 8 Pro for PIMSY
by Leigh-Ann Renz, 6.6.13
If you’re considering purchasing a Windows tablet, please know that PIMSY will not run on the Windows RT device. RT only runs touch-friendly mobile apps available through the new Windows store. This means that an RT tablet will only be able to use apps downloaded from the Windows Store, but won’t be able to download any third-party apps from the Web such as Facebook.
“Pro tablets will run the full desktop version of Windows 8 (32 and 64 bit), so consumers can use any of the software they currently have on previous versions of Windows all the way back to XP. Windows 8 Pro will also allow users to download any third-party app [such as Facebook], as well as anything from the Windows Store.” (http://www.digitaltrends.com/)
Additionally, while there is an optional mobile version of Microsoft Office Suite available for the RT, that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, it will not give users all of the abilities available from the full desktop or laptop software.
Bottom line: if you’re planning on using PIMSY on a Windows tablet, be sure to purchase Windows 8 Pro and not Windows RT. Please let us know if you have any questions or need any more information.
