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 fact that they can pull a reference design and quickly get this to market without having to do much engineering work.

Additionally, the fact that they can use this to set up a closed infrastructure where they can let people into their "walled garden".

Finally, the fact that you can shoehorn this into something with the dimensions of a network switch due to ARM taking a lot less power, and make an appliance out of it. Atom just isn't there yet.
