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.

NT on ARM is just that, NT on the ARM architecture. People can do whatever they want with that. You can run it on a server or on a tablet.
Windows 7 already runs on tablets. Some people think that you don't need Windows software on a tablet but that is wrong. I know people who bought tablets just to run Photoshop on it.

Very well actually. This is how you should use Photoshop. Photoshop works better on a tablet with a stylus than on a screen with a mouse. I believe a tablet with Photoshop is pretty much a must have for any artist.
