Windows on ARMThat Windows 8 was going to run on ARM CPUs has been known for a while, but it looks like only now have reports appeared about just when tablets loaded with it will be formally launched. The major barrier that ARM faced when approaching the PC market was the fact that its processors were not supported by the Microsoft Windows operating system.


Nevertheless, with tablets proving to be so popular, it was decided that Windows 8 would support the architecture alongside the x86 used by Intel and AMD.

As such, as soon as the OS is completed, one can be sure that a number of ARM tablets will be devised as well.
