1.I often take photo's with an DSLR in Raw format and was wondering if the surface can display this format? I dont consider to do photo editing, this is something for my desktop PC at Home. But if I am on a trip it would be really helpfull to look at all the raw photos on a bigger screen instead of the display from the camera.

2.Is the playback from MKV files still a problem? is there a player in the m-store which can play them or even the standard video player?

3.And what exaclty is this touchDown app, which is shown in another Thread. Dont heard of it at all.

4.Are you happy with your surface and do you miss x86 programs?

Thank You for your replies

I use Mobile.HD for MKV files and not had a problem with the few videos I've tried. Plays flawlessly and no stutter at all.

Being able to run x86 would be nice just so I could have more choice of games as there's barely anything decent out for RT at the moment. Hopefully this will change as the RT matures.
