Hardware, Embedded Systems Just - just hold on a second. This is big: NVIDIA, maker of graphics accelerator chips, has just announced, during its keynote at CES, that it is developing a high-performance ARM-based processor together with ARM, targeted squarely at the desktop, server, and even high-performance computing markets. That Windows on ARM thing? NVIDIA referenced it multiple times! Update: Boom, and we have a press release. "NVIDIA announced today that it plans to build high-performance ARM based CPU cores, designed to support future products ranging from personal computers and servers to workstations and supercomputers. Known under the internal codename 'Project Denver', this initiative features an NVIDIA CPU running the ARM instruction set, which will be fully integrated on the same chip as the NVIDIA GPU."

What should I call it then? How about, "The Additional Cost Applied to the Computer System for the License To Use The Included Microsoft Software, Which Is Hard [If Not Impossible] To Get Refunded?" Is that better?


Hang on a second: presumably, you're opposed to the idea of using Windows either because you simply don't like the product or you find it distasteful from a purely ideological standpoint. Either of those are perfectly fine reasons not to use it. Moreover, you don't want to buy a computer with Windows pre-installed because you regard it as a "tax" (which it isn't) and you believe it may be difficult to obtain a refund for the unused copy of Windows.

Here's a simple solution: don't buy a computer with Windows pre-installed.
