That link is to an outdated discussion about Windows 8 RT vs full Windows 8.
RT is now effectively dead.
I believe this question relates to running the new Microsoft Surface with full Windows 8.1, in which case the answer is yes, it will run Cloud apps although system requirements should be checked since they vary from app to app.
Thank you. I think we'll go ahead and try it. The system requirements seem fine. I just saw notes from some that it only worked with PRO. My daughter will be so happy if she can use the whole suite for her editing.
