Windows Very light on details, but this is interesting nonetheless - very interesting, and potentially one of the biggest things to have hit the operating systems business this decade. Bloomberg is reporting that Microsoft plans to announce Windows for ARM processors at CES in January 2011.

... But still Linux biggest advantages on arm are drivers and applications ...


... and further, even if your favorite Linux application hasn't been released on ARM, you at least have chance of compiling it yourself. I used "scratchbox" to compile some essential command-line utilities for my ARM-based Nokia N810. It was a bit complicated, but way better than waiting for a proprietary commercial company to do it (or more likely not) for you.
