Microsoft announced last week that future Qualcomm ARM processors would be able to run the full version of Windows 10, showing a demo of Photoshop running on a Snapdragon 820 processor that’s already available on a number of devices out there.
And because Windows on ARM seems to be Microsoft’s new push, it was only a matter of time until developers embraced it, and it appears that this is happening already.
Famous SSH client PuTTY has been recompiled to work on Windows 10 ARM using what seems to be an unreleased version of Visual Studio – it’s likely that when the first ARM processor supporting full Windows 10 goes live, Microsoft might also release a new version of Visual Studio, making it possible for devs to easily recompile their programs to support the platform.
