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.

RE[2]: Not Win CE

Wake me when .net gets retooled to allow power effective optionals. Visual Studio is not the best IDE around for crossplatform development. That is a toss up between QT Designer Kdevelop and Eclipse.

Number of platforms Visual Studio supports is basically nothing.

Lets not forget that you can develop on Windows Mobile, Windows Phone 7, Zune, Xbox 360 (via XNA) and then there is the .Net Micro-framework, which can run on a wristwatch.

Anyway, the original posters point was that there are plenty of developers with relevant experience already for .Net, which will certainly be included with any ARM version of Windows.

So the development skills are already there.
