Microsoft Surface Tablet Review
It may look the part, but the Surface RT has a long way to go before it can compete well.
Music & Audio Controls
Controlling your music in the XBox Music interface isn't all that bad, though there are a few quirks. You can use files you've imported on your own from a thumb drive, or you can stream/buy music from XBox Music, Microsoft's replacement to the Zune service. Once you've navigated the Metro-style interface to the files you want, tap them, and they'll start playing. The control scheme is minimal, but functional, though advanced options are mysteriously absent.
Music & Audio Management
Because Windows RT is at the very core a version of windows, files are managed in a nested system of folder libraries like they would be on a personal computer. You can use the Metro interface to browse these folders through the respective app if need be, which saves a lot of time.
