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.

Do you mean compared to IOS? That's a joke right? I mean, more than joke that Ballmer is...


Most people will never use iOS. Most people use, have used or will use Windows.

Making that platform available for a new CPU architecture is a bigger deal than a phone OS that shipped with nice launcher icons and good framerate. It would "validate" ARM for many desktop/laptop use cases (e.g. for people that just need MSOffice).
