If you really want to run apps on Microsoft Surface RT tablet that has a jailbreak label, you will have to run Windows RT jailbreak tool first, discovered by C. L. Rokr. This jailbreaking tool has been posted on the XDA Developers forums; there you will get installation directives and instructions as well as FAQ. The jailbreak is an automatic process, and you will not have too much compounding issues like the android rooting.

This jailbreak is just like the tethered process in the iOS, the jailbreak has to re-run at each boot fo the Windows RT. The Windows Surface RT maker may look into the security measure to block this loop hole in the future, and it may overlook it, who knows as it told reporters early in the week.

Some of the apps that has successful run on the Surface PC includes; IP Messenger, Notepad++, TightVNC, a Nintendo game emulator named CrystalBoy, etc. Then Bochs, an x86 emulator also finds its way to one of the early apps.
