Windows RT Tablet Unlock To Run X86 Apps Via Emulator

lifehacker.com has an article:

Run Full Windows Applications on Your Windows RT Tablet

Run Full Windows Applications on Your Windows RT TabletRun Full Windows Applications on Your Windows RT TabletIf you have an ARM tablet running Windows RT, (like the Microsoft Surface tablet,) you already know that you're restricted to applications that Microsoft has approved and added to the Windows Store. Those kinds of restrictions have never stopped enterprising hackers before, and thanks to XDA developer mamaich and his new utility that allows you to run full x86 Windows applications of RT tablets, it doesn't have to stop you either.

Its beta and has a download link I think. I don't have a Windows RT tablet to try it.

Be aware this is a very limited emulation with lots of things that don't work - and the cpu clock is about 100mhz on the emulation.

If this is a really huge need (running x86 apps on a surface) you would be REALLY UNHAPPY with the RT. Just get a pro.
