Windows The rumours about Windows possibly being ported to ARM has left a lot of people bewildered; why would you port Windows NT when Windows CE 6.0 is a perfectly capable operating system? Putting all the pieces together, it's actually quite clear why you would want Windows NT on ARM: servers.

Another point on software, is that lots of applications for Windows are written in .NET, and would be easily ported to ARM, when .NET runs on ARM.

Actually .NET is not Windows. .NET applications are not Windows applications either. They are supposed to run on linux with Mono as well. Windows is not needed to run .NET applications.

Windows is not needed to run .NET applications.

Try running Paint.net in Linux then.

Mono is a limited implementation and basically capped at version 2.
