Windows "As early as mid-December, consumers will be able to go to retail stores in the United States and Australia to purchase a Surface with Windows RT. Additional availability will be added in a number of countries in the coming months." Sales might indeed benefit from, you know, allowing the world to actually buy your halo product. Us Dutch won't be getting the Nexus 4 and 10 either.

Originally, yes - not since NT4. NT4 took the UI out of user space and put it in the Kernel, and so in doing, made portability much more involved. Up to NT3.51, it was designed so that every subsystem could be replaced easily - this is where a lot of the "NT is highly portable" comes from. e.g. NT hasn't run on PowerPC, DEC etc, *since* NT 4 was released. Any later port would have been a larger undertaking than "just recompiling the kernel and creating a new HAL".
