    Well there is a jailbreak for Surface out. This makes it possible to download and install desktop apps. But I wasnt able to download any tho, but I think the desktop apps have to go through a procedure or something. But I like where this is heading!!

    Edit: the desktop apps have to compiled, or something, but there's a list of compiled app which will work http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2092348

    Yeah, Not at a mass consumer usability yet. Apps need to be compiled to work on the ARM processor. Give it a few months to build up stability and killer apps that are ARM compatible.
