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.

Windows 8 ARM = iOS

The article cited and the summary say that Apple realeases only one OS. That is false. They release OS X and iOS. iOS would correspond to Windows 8 ARM. So let's either take Widnows 8 ARM out of the equation or add iOS to the equation. Having it both ways is a misrepresentation of reality, i.e. pro-Apple and/or anti-Microsoft spin.

I could say a lot more (like the lameness of listing an "Eval" version as if that will be offered to consumers, or the lameness of poking around in registries as if internal software settings directly correspond with what will eventually be offered to consumers), but at least get the Windows 8 ARM = iOS thing right.
