Windows 8 RT vs Windows 8 (home) vs Windows 8 Pro vs Windows 8 Enterprise features comparison


Windows RT 
Windows RT tablets and PCs are made to go anywhere. Thin and light, with extended battery life, they start up in an instant and stay connected to email, social networks, and apps, so you’re always up to date. Office Home & Student 2013 RT Preview is also included, so you can be productive while on the go. Windows RT is only available preinstalled on select tablets and PCs and it only runs built-in apps or apps that you download from the Windows Store. For more information, see the Windows RT FAQ.

Windows 8 
Windows 8 is the home version for x86 Intel and AMD PCs. The features you do and don't get mostly make sense; joining a domain, encrypting your disk with BitLocker and being able to log into your PC remotely are business features.

You can connect to a PC at work from a Windows 8 system, with Remote Desktop or a VPN, you can combine multiple hard drives into one storage 'pool' that has multiple copies of your files and you can mount VHD and ISO images as if they were hard drives – but you can't boot from a VHD file.
And anyone who speaks more than one language or travels between countries will be delighted that you can switch not just the keyboard but the Windows interface from one language to another without paying extra. - techradar
