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.

It would be interesting if Microsoft could use a specially-tailored version of Windows Server software to build complex cloud of services / applications on a large cluster of low-priced servers based on cheap ARM processors. That could be VERY interesting...

A large score of ARM-based servers with no HDDs (only flash disks) would be cheap, low-energy AND it could also be powerful since I bet we could have those CPUs at relatively cheap price...
