NewsOutlook RT for Windows RT PinstaffTerrence Dorsey29-Jan-13 11:28 
I believe one of the debates that is going on inside of Microsoft is how, and if, they should release Office 2013 Professional, Enterprise, or Office 365 for Windows RT. This is a far more complicated question than most observers would give it credit for. It’s not that it is hard to do, it is that it may not meet customer expectations while creating a long-term support (and migration) headache. Just on the support front it commits Microsoft to up to a decade of support for what is likely an interim offering (more on that later). And it commits them to new releases of desktop Office for a while on Windows RT as well. It also raises questions about more generally opening the desktop on Windows RT, which is something that is counter-strategic.
Tablets and related mobile devices need a new kind of mail client. Can Outlook solve that problem?
