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.

So, basically you want Wine with machine-code translation.

We're already on Win32.
Such a project is just a simple JIT for user mode instructions. Static binary translation works too, since most binaries are static. Intel did this with Android - not a big deal. The most difficult part here is a validation.
