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.

PLus, I've heard the ARM server rumours as well, but I don't believe they will be a viable option. There is today, not a market for ARM based servers.


Yes there is. It's not going to replace x86-64 overnight, but Linux deployments make up a significant portion of server sales. Linux deployments mostly don't need to worry about the CPU architecture.

I know I could replace a significant number of x86-64 servers with ARM without any problems, and the power savings are likely enough to make it worthwhile. I don't believe my situation is at all unique.
