I've submitted DCR's clamoring for support for W8 for IBM i Access for Windows. This crap of waiting until the OS is so obsolete it's been replaced has to stop.

If it's Windows RT, then "no" as it's not x86/x64-based.

If it's Windows 8, then "yes" since it's Windows 8. Tablet is just the
formfactor. You linked to a Surface Pro, which runs real Windows 8. Once
IBM supports Access on Wn8 it will work.

I told her yesterday that I didn't know for sure, but she's asking again
today. So. I'm asking the experts.
