Dell has opted not to release a Windows RT device with its latest line-up of tablets and laptops. The US Company had been the last to support the operating system other than its maker, Microsoft. Dell supposed the software had failed to resonate with its clientele because it did not support legacy software available to the full Windows 8 OS.
The firm is in the procedure of being taken over by a group led by its originator, Michael Dell. He plans to stop its shares being widely traded and refocus Dell's operations on business-targeted software and services rather than consumer-focused hardware. Mr. Griffin’s opinion is that there had been resistance from corporate IT departments to the idea of sustaining what was effectively another operating system on top of the various releases of the main Windows OS.
