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.

"MS does not have a good enough OS on ARM to complete.

How do you know if it hasn't been released, we have almost no details and no reviews?
"
If you had read my full line. You would have seen this was referring to MS existing OS's on arm. Windows CE and Windows Phone(what is basically a CE core).

CE feature set does not compare to Linux or darwin or qnx. Yes Linux the core of Android. Darwin the core of Iphone. And QNX the core the blackberry.

Most likely the fast way to expand there OS core function is port NT. But even then NT has baggage in its design.
