Windows RT - One Good Thing

The Microsoft Surface computers that have been available so far have been running Windows RT, which is the "tablet version" of Windows 8. We won't get a Surface device running Windows 8 until the Surface Pro models are made available early next year. One good thing that is often overlooked (by me too) is that the Windows RT operating system is not susceptible to viruses that affect "normal" Windows - it's almost like trying to infect an Android tablet with a Windows virus. Now, if Windows RT becomes popular enough, no doubt some bright spark will make the effort to change that, but meantime that's a plus, yes?
