Windows Very light on details, but this is interesting nonetheless - very interesting, and potentially one of the biggest things to have hit the operating systems business this decade. Bloomberg is reporting that Microsoft plans to announce Windows for ARM processors at CES in January 2011.

Counter foothold move.

Linux has quite a big foothold on ARM

MS does not have a good enough OS on ARM to complete. So NT based kinda has to come across.

Still will not change the problem that most of the Windows programs out there are x86.

But still Linux biggest advantages on arm are drivers and applications. Yes the mirror of MS biggest advantages on x86.

At least now we might be able to say by by to Windows CE and Windows Phone. So leaving MS with only 1 OS core to focus on.
