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.

Windows 8 will just be another evolution of Windows 7, as it was an evolution of Windows Vista, which is just an evolution of Windows XP, which is just the combination of the Windows 9x GUI-look on top of the Windows NT core, evolved from Windows 2K, and, originally, from Windows NT 4.0, and 3.5 before it.

They aren't going to chuck all the code from Windows 7, start from scratch, and create an entirely new Windows OS. That's like saying that Ubuntu 11.04 is completely new, and not an evolution of Debian.
