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.

Will It Pay Off?

The main reason people use Windows is its supposed backwards compatibility - knowing that your accumulated software collection will *probably* still run. People don't use Windows because it has an awesome interface, features, or stability... quite the opposite. It's because they feel locked in to what everyone else is using. They probably need to make the ARM version anyway, but perhaps Windows is starting to lose its former relevance.
