Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Intel and AMD. These guys are doing pretty well in laptops, servers, and of course desktops, but when it comes to mobile devices, they've so far been unable to adapt the x86 architecture to the stricter requirements that come with those devices. ARM, on the other hand, pretty much owns this market at this point. And you know what? It's time for Intel and AMD to get worried - really worried. ARM has just announced its Cortex-A15 MPCore chips - which will reach 2.5Ghz in quad-core configurations.

ReactOS still relies on a number of MS DLLs in the end to run a good-bit of software. It also has the issue that most Windows software is 32-bit x86 only, with some also providing 64-bit x86 variants. ARM doesn't sport x86 compatibility, and never will. Now if you want to put an emulator there too - that's one thing, but that's not ARM.
