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.

Absolutely right, to an extent, familiarity helps, but especially with Java you're going to run into some limits as to what you can do with the platform. There's really not a presentation platform on Android anywhere near as rich as Silverlight, and this is coming from someone who desperately wishes there was.

Don't get me wrong, Android is very nice and the platform is very well thought out, but it's just not the same.
