Windows RT has PowerShell and Command Prompts and feels like Windows 8

I was a little concerned that Windows RT would be to Windows 8 what iOS is to OSX. After using my new ASUS Vivo Tab RT (simply because the Microsoft Surface doesn’t turn up in Australia for a couple of weeks) for a couple of hours – it’s fair to say that using Windows RT feels pretty identical to running Windows 8.

I was even able to fire up PowerShell and a Command Prompt.

I’m sure that the differences will be more visible once I’ve used it longer, but at the moment it really feels like Windows 8 – just running on an iPad form factor device.
