Windows And this is part two of the story: Microsoft has just confirmed the next version of Windows NT (referring to it as NT for clarity's sake) will be available for ARM - or more specifically, SoCs from NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments. Also announced today at CES is Microsoft Office for ARM. Both Windows NT and Microsoft Office were shown running on ARM during a press conference for the fact at CES in Las Vegas.

If this turns out to be succesful, this will be the biggest binary break in the history of mankind. Microsoft delayed this for a very good reason, and that's not big/little endian ;-).

It means there is no longer value in all the "legacy" crap that runs only on windows (shareware, etc), and it means there will be a bunch of windows computers that are immune to computer viruses running around (for a while).
