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.

If you downloaded a shell script for Unix/Linux without understanding from a random site and not understanding how it worked and just ran it, it would cause havok on your system as well.


True (providing one goes through the step of making the script executable after downloading it).

This is an excellent reason to avoid the practice of simply downloading software from some random site, making it executable, and then running it.

Fortuantely, it is entirely possible to install and run a complete Linux desktop (open source) software ensemble without ever once having to do such a thing.

Sticking to such a process as a self-imposed policy is the one known and well-proven way to be utterly certain to completely avoid malware and yet still be able to run a complete desktop software ensemble.
