          I think Windows 8 RT falls between three stools at the moment.

           

          1. Full Windows 8 will run ADE exactly as earlier editions of Windows did;
            so act as a 'host'  (my own terminology) for managing eBook downloads etc

          2. 'Normal' tablets (android, iPad) have apps such as Bluefire to read DRM ebooks,
            and then files can be copied from a host PC.
            [a] Also extra specific apps for Overdrive library books etc.

          3. Dedicated ebook readers act as 'clients' and can have files pushed to them from ADE on a 'host' PC.
            This will work for several different book sources to ADE, as long as they use Adobe DRM.

           

          There seem to be various specific apps for Windows 8 RT that will download and read eBooks (as in 2a above);

          for Overdrive (library books), Kindle, Barnes and Noble, etc

          (try a google search for 'windows 8 rt ebook'),

          but I can't see any generic ones such as Bluefire.
