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.

I cant see a referral to Windows NT in the press release?


You read Thom's summary wrong - he was the one clarifying this - to make sure nobody was confusing it with Windows CE/Phone/Mobile/Pocket (whatever they call it now).

Thus, Windows 8 for ARM will not be based on NT the same way that Apple's iOS was not based on OS X.
