Windows As you all know, Windows 8 will be the first release of Windows NT which supports the ARM architecture. Microsoft hasn't been particularly forthcoming about this new Windows variant, but that's changing today. The company has posted a long and in-depth blog post about Windows 8 on ARM.

No, I meant why did they bother porting the DESKTOP over, if you can't run any apps on it. Why not just do metro and be done with it?


Because Office 15 isn't written for Metro and needs the legacy desktop to run.
