Now Microsoft’s ready to put a naming scheme on its much-anticipated menu for the operating system. According to a post on the Windows blog,ARM devices will get Windows RT,while x86 / 64 devices will run Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro (also for x86 devices) will offer the suit-and-tie set added features for “encryption,virtualization,PC management and domain connectivity.”Windows Media Center will be packaged as an add-on for the folks who go Pro.
