This is a Remote Desktop app. There are a number of them in the App Store.
I was excited at first thinking about some kind of a hacked iPad that could truly run Windows 8 lol.

However, Electricpig points out that although the app is intended primarily for use by developers, there’s no reason why anyone else who isn’t a developer shouldn’t download it. The app costs £6.99 (see link below) from the App Store, and you’ll also need to download the free desktop streamer to your Windows 8 PC (only available as a free consumer preview at the moment). Set up the app and the streamer, and you’ll be ready to go!
This is interesting, Maura. What I don't understand is Do I have to have Win8 on my PC and then SSH to it? I did the Google bit but didn't find or didn't understand. Could you elaborate?
