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.

Here's a break down of NT version numbers:

NT 5.0 -> Windows 2000 / Windows 2000 server
NT 5.1 -> Windows XP
NT 5.2 -> Windows 2003/Windows XP x64
NT 6.0 -> Windows Vista / Windows 2008
NT 6.1 -> Windows 7 / Windows 2008 R2

Windows 7 would probably have been called "Vista R2" but given the damage done to Vista name it made since to use a completely new name.

Really notice that Windows 2008 users did not have to pay to get 2008 R2.

Yet poor people who paid for Vista have to pay to get 7.

Its normal MS money grubing double standards.
