According to various sources, Microsoft will support the Surface RT until April 2017. Really good news for Surface's Owners showing Microsoft commitment to this device. As many other sites already noticed, Apple stopped updating the original iPad after 2 years and one month.
Can Microsoft keep such promise? Well, 4 years is a long time when you are talking about technology. Microsoft ended with Windows XP the idea of supporting without upgrades the same OS for long period of time. Now we should be seeing a new OS every two years. So if this still in place we should see at least one more version of the OS in the life of the Surface RT. Will IT be compatible with a new version of the OS or the hardware is not going to be powerful enough to handle that OS new version? Let's hope it's.
