The real truth is, that if Microsoft had ported even NT 4.0 to the ARM it'd be a real player.


ReactOS is currently being ported to ARM, which should become interesting

Has anybody else noted the fact that Nokia hasn't comitted to opening a single line of code until at least 2010... This seems more aimed at generating buzz than anything else. If they were serious about saving Symbian, they would dump the code right now, Mozilla-style.
