Windows The rumours about Windows possibly being ported to ARM has left a lot of people bewildered; why would you port Windows NT when Windows CE 6.0 is a perfectly capable operating system? Putting all the pieces together, it's actually quite clear why you would want Windows NT on ARM: servers.

the whole thing is very simple really. remember the talk of having "windows as a service"? the OS loading from the cloud and bla bla bla. thinking about these arm netbooks and arm tablets it would make sense that these would load a web version of windows with minimal local instal. that's a lot less to port to arm. then again, maybe I'm wrong. it happens every now and then.
