Hi eric, no MoI won't run on Windows RT - no regular Windows program will run on Windows RT, only the new lightweight "Metro" style mini apps.

The Windows RT machine runs on a different kind of CPU than a regular machine, so it can't run regular Windows programs. The only exception is parts of MS Office which has a customized version of some of it which comes with it. It's not able to run other "desktop environment" applications at all.

They probably should not have ever called it "Windows" at all and used some other name for it since that's pretty confusing that they named it "Windows something" but it does not run Windows programs.

So don't get a Windows RT machine if you plan on running MoI with it - it will not work for that.
