Depends on your technical skills. Most programmers in this forum can do it. For layperson it may not be so easy but it also depends on how many steps is required to pull this off.

I haven't gone to XDA to check since I don't have a Win RT but I think an x86 emulator running on a ARM CPU is not going to be very fast.
Bought an RT to do school work.. to realise it cant even load java to access blackboard.. wasted lol

its depends on the user, not the device =p

mayb rt version not that user friendly n etc, but the surface pro version is probably the best tablet ard

only surface pro 2 will dethrone and samsung note pro 12.2 can try to challenge

surface pro 2 seems to have very good battery life.

Surface Pro 2 battery life improves by almost 20 percent after firmware update | The Verge
upto 9 hours, with some sites claiming 10.5 hours.
that's like double of surface pro :O

Surface 2 is ARM-based so can't run Oracle Java7 or normal windows software unless the developers port their software.

JavaScript on the other hand is built into IE11 & is very fast. So it depends on whether the developers can port things to html5/JavaScript.

yes. pro models are basically your windows laptop/ultrabook/pc.
