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.

Most of their tools are nowadays developed in .Net.

Even the C/C++ build chain now make use of msbuild (Microsoft's Ant) instead of nmake.


The only C/C++ software are operating system low level stuff and APIs, games and applications that Microsoft has before .Net.

Still, C and C++ can be made quite portable, and lets not forget that the NT line used to run in several platforms.
