Can Calibre run under the Surface RT?

Will it run under Surface PRO?

Thanks

Window PRO

I go on Bus trips and I like to use my Kindle but I like Calibre, which I use on my laptop and Desktop. But on a Bus, with the lack of sufficient leg space, I can not use my Laptop. So, I am thinking about buying a Window PRO and using that on my tours which can be long rides.

The modern buses have electrical outlets for every other seat. I take my extension cord and use it to charge my Kindle, regardless of where I sit. Should work for the Surface Pro as well.

I like to use Calibre because I can read my e-books regardless of the format.

BTW duck, I use my desktop as my main library. I have plenty of disk space on this machine.

Yes, I know for a fact it works on Surface Pro. Screen size issues aside, it works very smoothly. 64GB Surface + 64GB sd.
