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."

So, what you're saying is... buy a Mac. Which, for a given spec, is almost always far more expensive and less-configurable than a PC--even with Windows included. And the hardware is far less configurable (in laptop territory in terms of the ability to upgrade its internals).

Why does "don't buy a computer with Windows pre-installed" sound like "buy a Mac" to you? It doesn't to me.

If you want to buy a PC without an operating system there are plenty of places you can do so.
