Update: I am no longer using this device, while it is great hardware, and Windows RT is not bad, there are part of Android (the underlying Unixy parts) that I cant live without. This ends my love affair with Windows.
A month ago I purchased a Surface RT. I needed a lightweight computer to do work on while I was traveling. The big issue I had was that I needed Office, and I needed a full copy of it, not Pages for iOS, or QuickOffice, or any of the other “office compatible applications”. So like any insane person would do, I started to make a list of applications that I use would need to use daily on a tablet. Skype, Logos Bible Software, an SSH Client, an IRC client, Evernote, Kindle, and LastPass where my top applications, without them I would not be able to use any device. I started to go down the list, and low and behold each one of them was available for Windows RT. So the combination of Office and my must have apps Surface RT seemed like a go.
