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.

Yeah, I'm trying to be modest over my skills of predicting an obvious future. There will not be a version for servers just yet. Probably the version after it hits the desktop.


In the linked story, I kept asking why Windows on ARM. I never got a good response from anyone. The announcement from nvidia provides the answer I was looking for. ARM in servers ? Doesn't make sense. ARM + Nvidia GPU on servers Huge amount of sense. The GPU does all the hard work, the main processor just sits there and looks pretty without consuming much energy.
