I would say that MS has as much presence in pro apps as Apple has in enterprise apps. Not much to speak of.
Mmmm...this is a more close comparison. You can probably convincingly argue either way.
Examples of how Windows 8 RT is better than iOS -
1. Windows 8/RT can display 2 or 3 apps side by side. iOS only displays 1 app at a time.
2. Windows 8/RT supports multi-user accounts.
3. Windows 8/RT has a better on-screen keyboard than the iPad. It can display a full size standard keyboard layout, with numbers at the top and even function keys, so you can use it just like a physical keyboard and not mess around with switching between letter and numbers. Also, when you press Caps or Shift, the letters on the keyboard change case rather than just lighting up the Shift key.
4. Windows 8/RT has much better support for external storage, such as USB 3.0 sticks, external hard drives, etc.
5. Windows 8RT gives you access to the full file system with a file manager.
6. Windows 8/RT supports a mouse too. If you connect the tablet to an external monitor (by cable or wirelessly) then you can use the tablet as a desktop base unit.
7. Windows 8/RT has full multi-monitor support, similar to a Mac.
8. Windows 8/RT has a much better framework for apps to share data with each other and to be able to do global native searches for content stored within apps.
9. Windows 8/RT is much more customisable with it's live tiles.
I could go on, but it clearly demonstrates the superior capability of Windows 8 and Windows RT compared with iOS.
Pro apps - there are plenty available for both platforms. Most companies which do pro apps support both platforms equally.
