Windows 8 will run many many more apps than Windows RT.
I said apps, not programs.
Regular Windows 8 runs legacy programs that don't work on RT, and there will be some new programs. But when they are written as "apps", for the Metro UI, these programs will run on both. And we can assume that most new programs will be written as apps.
