Windows So, a rudimentary jailbreak for Windows RT made its way onto the web these past few days. Open source applications were ported right away, and it was confirmed that Windows RT is the full Windows - it's exactly the same as regular Windows, except that it runs on ARM. Microsoft responded to the jailbreak as well.

There'are people who can create fast x86 emulator (and some are already doing that),
Microsoft just need to get out of their way.

Qemu is more-or-less the fastest one, but it still ain't fast. You possibly think of virtualization, which is not the same thing.

No. I'm talking about process-level emulator, not the OS.
There is zero sense in full-system emulator. Full win32 is here already.
Anyway, Elbrus Technologies for example, aims for 80% emulation effeciency, but they're targeting enterprise market.
