Windows So, a rudimentary jailbreak for Windows RT made its way onto the web these past few days. Open source applications were ported right away, and it was confirmed that Windows RT is the full Windows - it's exactly the same as regular Windows, except that it runs on ARM. Microsoft responded to the jailbreak as well.

No. I'm talking about process-level emulator, not the OS.
There is zero sense in full-system emulator. Full win32 is here already.

So, basically you want Wine with machine-code translation. Too bad that it won't happen without Microsoft's help, as even Wine is still riddled with bugs after all these years.

Anyway, Elbrus Technologies for example, aims for 80% emulation effeciency, but they're targeting enterprise market.
