Recent estimations put Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows RT selling at an anemic rate of only 50,000 units per month. For a company the size of Microsoft, this is doing next to nothing to its bottom line, not to mention it's tarnishing the Windows 8 franchise with added confusion for consumers. Given the fact the Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is on the verge of releasing a tablet processor based on a 22-nanometer design, it's almost all but certain that Windows RT will eventually become a thing of the past. In the video, Motley Fool contributor Steve Heller discusses why he believes Windows RT needs to die and where he wants Microsoft to focus its efforts.
