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.

Larger enterprises that *have* written software for windows server, and would have to port it over to ARM Windows.

In addition to the .net ancle already mentioned, "porting" means just recompiling. That may not be trivial for ad hoc hackjobs abundant in microsoft shops, but big hitters (oracle, ms itself, adobe, ibm...) will have their software up and running in no time (most of the time going for verification).
