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.

Virtual Machine or Hypervisor?

I am not very knowledgeable in this area, so I am just kind shooting in the dark here, but is it possible for them to run windows 7 and native apps on some type of hypervisor? I dont know if it's possible to emulate or virtualize x86 code on ARM, but that would be interesting.

Microsoft may not be the best in the virtualization sector, but the hypervisor technology in Windows 2008 is actually pretty good and is not too resource hungry.
