Windows And this is part two of the story: Microsoft has just confirmed the next version of Windows NT (referring to it as NT for clarity's sake) will be available for ARM - or more specifically, SoCs from NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments. Also announced today at CES is Microsoft Office for ARM. Both Windows NT and Microsoft Office were shown running on ARM during a press conference for the fact at CES in Las Vegas.

Now Microsoft's strategy with .NET makes quite a lot of sense.

Their hope is to get as much software as possible running on .NET so that it will work on x86 desktops and newer ARM computers.

Pretty sensible from the outset ...

For devs it is a nice toolkit to use and it makes developing for Desktop, Web and Mobile nice and familiar.

Also considering how bad .NET 1.0 and 1.1 compared to .NET 2.0 and above. There has been a nice steady improvement in .NET since version 2.0.
