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.

A company I used to work for Used to run NT servers on Alpha, they were fast, really fast, and being servers, app compatibility was mostly irrelevant.

While I was there, we tested NT on an alpha desktop, and any apps run were emulated(very slowly) under a layer called FX32 (I think). Hopefully that won't be an issue here, and a native version of office is encouraging.
