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.

It is without doubt very much NT. The likelyhood of Microsoft completely rewriting every single subsystem to such an extent they are no longer the least bit compatible is very low. Particularly considering the portability of the NT kernel and Windows API.

But of course... Microsoft may have switched ported Windows API to Haiku, OS/2 or even the Linux-kernel. I doubt it though.
