PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft had its annual financial analyst meeting on Thursday, and Steve Ballmer answered questions about what the company's answer to the iPad was going to be, and whether Windows Phone 7 was going to be a part of that product strategy. He said, "We're coming . . . We're coming full guns. The operating system is called Windows." Ballmer and Microsoft so don't get it. I can't believe Steve Ballmer is making me feel sorry for Microsoft.

Windows NT/2k/XP/7 is very portable, when NT 4 came out, it ran on Alpha, PowerPC, MIPS and x86. It was designed that way. The problem with Windows on alternative platforms is that nobody was interested it, because of the lack of apps.

The problem with Windows on tablets, is the UI, as many people have pointed out. It has nothing to do with scaling to different architectures, as that capability is already there.
