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.

It also shows that MS' implementation of AWE requires physical pages and is therefore unsuitable to extend addressing. On client systems it's only useful to get from 2Gb to (some value less than) 4Gb.


I'm sorry, I think we were talking past one another - I thought you meant that client versions of 32bit Windows had zero options to go past the 2GB limit for applications. We actually meant the same thing, except I was unaware of the 4GB limit of AWE. Thanks for clarifying!
