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.

Microsoft have many obstacles to overcome in this category of the market -- the least of which is time. How long have ARM netbooks and mobile devices been around? How long has WindowsCE had an ARM port? And how much long term success has Microsoft had with its NT family of operating systems running on architectures other than x86-32/64 ? Sing the doom song, GIR.
