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.

Well, we may *expect* this to happen [expect that corps will get classic UI with Windows 8] but the problem is that they probobly won't.
Classic app compatibility is quite misearble at this point, and MS is taking away some of the most classic features like START button.

I'd rather say corps will stay on Windows XP/7, which is far more reasonable for them.
