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.

Herpa derp! I'mma port my company's OS and modify it so customers can use it on their tablets, and at the same time remove the entire point of running Windows! Yeah! Best. Plan. Evar.

I'm fully aware x86 apps won't run on an ARM processor, but really, restricting Windows to just the app store is possibly the stupidest thing they could have done, in terms of marketing the device to the end users. The only reason to want Windows on a tablet, over Android or iOS, is for the familiar desktop, and the flexibility of installing whatever you damn well please.
