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.

Microsoft is proud to announce what open source developers and other companies have done a long time ago, simply hilarious.

Open source devs and other companies have ported Windows NT to ARM, really?
(I mean, surely you don't mean operating systems in general - since, say, MS has at least one other OS which runs on ARM for a long time)

Don't forget: around here, Microsoft only does the stupidest things and OSS is full of the bestest, most powerful and secure software ever. If you dare to question it, you must be a shill!

Make me laugh please . B)

Open source OSes run on many different hardware platforms, since more than 8 or 10 years. Windows just runs on 3 different platforms.If you mean Windows mobile it is a miserable try to make windows work on embedded devices, totally unacceptable for a company who hires thousands of programmers and engineers, and has bilions of dollars in the bank.
