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.

Initially it'll be the low raw crunch servers,

Think that, but with 8x 2.5Ghz Cortex A15 based quads with 256Gb+ of ram running Windows Server 2012 for ARM.

It's a scary thought, but thats what we'll be seeing.

I'll probably be another 2+ years before Win8 on ARM would be all that useful for general consumers though as it'll take some time for the non business apps to filter in.
