Dell has opted not to release a Windows RT device among its latest line-up of tablets and laptops.

The US manufacturer had been the last to support the operating system other than its creator, Microsoft.

Dell said the software had failed to "resonate" with its customers because it did not support legacy software available to the full Windows 8 OS.Windows RT Not In Dell's New Device Release [bbc.co.uk]

Can't say I blame them. Windows RT is not the Windows that customers expect, unless they're savvy enough to know the difference. I'm sure most 3rd party equipment manufacturers would want to stay away from this. Just imagine all the support calls this must generate when people discover they can't add any desktop software...
