Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

What, only one ARM version?

The only thing that actually surprises me is that they have only the one ARM edition, I expected them to have at least 2 in order to allow differentiation in the mobile market, your know an ARM basic for low end tabs and phones and an ARM premium for high end devices. Seems like they've missed a pretty basic marketing trick there, surprising really, especially since their partner Nokia is in the process of phasing out Symbian and is going to need a low end offering. MS is usually pretty good at this stuff though, perhaps they'll launch further ARM versions later.
