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 new file system does not mean a completely different operating system.

With any operating system there is always stuff that changes,but a lot remains the same. Determining when to call something a completely new operating system vs jsut a new version of an operating system is sometimes difficult to do, but I don't think Windows 8 will have enough differences to qualify as "completely new". Now if its really just midori ( kernel written in C#) with a compatibility api for legacy win32 stuff, that would be a "completely new" operating system. ANd there has been some speculation that something of that calibre is/or has been considered.
