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.

I imagine many people could be swayed by such deal and be rather glad, Office being basically the only essential "very desktop" application they use... (as for the "typical rest": browser, IM, music, videos, some light gaming - I don't really see anything which doesn't already work well on ~smartphonified UIs)

Bonus (for MS): no Open Office / Libre Office (which BTW I can see as something the EU etc. would take issue with - so maybe, down the road, this will mean forcing at least partial opening of "desktop" WOA)
