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.

ReactOS is a better target for developers even on ARM.


I have high hopes for ReactOS, but this statement is completely false at this point.

First, although a lot of work was done at one point, ReactOS does not even support ARM.

Second, although there have been some exciting developments lately, like USB and wireless networking, ReactOS does not even work on most hardware yet.

Third, let's just skip the other "completeness" arguments and skip to the fact that ReactOS has about 0% market-share.

The last point should probably be first. If there is nobody to buy your software, it makes a poor target for your development efforts.

Thankfully, targeting ReactOS and targeting XP, Vista, and 2003 are all basically the same thing.
