Windows And thus, Microsoft bites itself in its behind with Metro. As you all surely know by now, the Metro environment in Windows 8, and its accompanying applications, need to follow a relatively strict set of rules and regulations, much like, say, applications on iOS. For one type of application, Metro has already proven to be too restrictive and limited: web browsers. Microsoft has had to define a separate application class [.docx] - aside from Metro and desktop applications - just to make third party web browsers possible for Windows 8.

Indeed. ARM, being a completely different architecture, has no legacy software to speak of and never will. There's exactly zero sense in allowing the old style of coding to get a foothold on the platform, it'd only create unnecessary complications later when it's deprecated entirely.
