Windows As you all know, Windows 8 will be the first release of Windows NT which supports the ARM architecture. Microsoft hasn't been particularly forthcoming about this new Windows variant, but that's changing today. The company has posted a long and in-depth blog post about Windows 8 on ARM.

x86 != ARM.

They are saying that any Windows 7 pc, will run Windows 8. No ARM device is in this group.

You are right, but I wasn't talking about WOA, but about Windows 8 (which as the article makes clear are two separate OSes, even though they share many components). I was talking about this article: http://www.osnews.com/story/25180, which states "Microsoft requires OEMs that want to be part of the logo program for Windows 8 to have secure boot enabled." However, if any Windows 7 PC will run Windows 8, this may be a moot point.

An article which IIRC was followed on & clarified, on this very site, in the meantime...

Also, future Windows logo requirements (for Windows 8) != past Windows logo requirements (for Windows 7 - which may furthermore become fairly unavailable in retail, after the launch of its successor)
