Windows With a flood of ARM-based netbooks coming to the market starting somewhere end of this year, many hope it will be another opportunity for Linux to get some mainstream exposure. Since "normal" Windows doesn't run on ARM, Linux is the only obvious choice. Right? Well, Warren East, president and CEO of ARM Holdings plc, has been dropping hints that Windows might make its way to ARM after all. At least, that's what EETimes is concluding.

But linux is superior to Windows CE in almost all features, it is free as beer, it already has many programs and it is not only a gadget OS like windows CE.

Windows user will want the full "windows experience", which means install the popular and old x86 binary programs. If they cannot do this, linux will be an alternative and cheaper solution than Windows CE solution.
