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.

Yeah, I assume thats peak. I wanted to overestimate the cost difference for affect. Even at 35 watts the cost savings per year for a single device isn't much.


It more than what you think if its in a server farm.

You are forgotten. Its not just the cost of the server. Its the cost of the power supply to support it in case of power outtage and the size power feeds racks require. Each 1 watt in a server farm very quickly totals up to a huge number.

And a server farms have to work on the presume that peak will be required while in power outage.
