Another canary in the Windows RT coalmine

Lenovo announces Yoga 11S with Intel CPU and full Windows 8

I just returned my Yoga 11 with Windows RT and now Lenovo announces a successor, which only starts shipping in five months. That gives Windows RT a six months shelf life.

For users, the switch means more weight, less battery life, the ability to run Norton Antivirus and the need for more storage to accommodate the much bigger Windows 8.

Thank heavens! I was really missing Norton...

Windows RT could be such a tremendous success but not being able to run Norton Antivirus is a really big mistake in Redmond's strategy.

there are enterprises with compliancy rules which name the security products which must be installed to be allowed to access a corparate server or enter the network. If "Norton" made it into one of that rules, then technical equivalent or even better alternatives are no alternaive. Compliancy rulez.

That is how enterprise works. If the rules state, you need a boat anchor, you have to have a boat anchor, even if you don't have a boat.

Love they boat anchors! Also known as the sprayed monkey syndrome.
