    This could have gone in either this forum or the Win 8 Tablet forum but I figured it might be more relevant here as my partner and I pre-ordered a surface...

    I'm curious as to multiple users on an RT Surface. I seem to recall that one feature of 8 was going to be cloud based user profiles. Is this going to have an impact on RT? Will we be able to power up the surface RT, log on with our own live ID/Microsoft account and see it populate with our own purchased apps/settings etc? But I can find no info as to whether or not RT is going to support multiple user login/access profiles etc.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    This is one of the often over looked, yet killer features that Windows RT offers over Android or iOS. This way you can have you child use your tablet without seeing your extensive pr0n collection (you perverts!) or buying a boat load of apps, or otherwise messing with your set up that you spend days or weeks perfecting.
