  • Windows 8 on ARM won’t run x86 apps Microsoft admits

    Windows on ARMWindows 8 ARM PCs will not, in fact, have full app compatibility with software designed for x86 Windows 7 and 8 computers, Microsoft has confirmed, instead demanding that developers port their titles over to the new architecture. Despite earlier suggestions that seemed to indicate otherwise, Windows president Steven Sinofsky clarified during an analyst Q&A this week that while new apps coded for the Metro UI will work on both x86 and ARM tablets, laptops and other computers, existing software will not.

  • Windows 8 on ARM Will Require Deeper Integration

    Windows on ARMWindows 8 on a tablet may take more work than Windows 8 on a PC - While Windows 8 will still find itself home in x86 and x64 desktops and laptops, it will be a major foray into the ARM-based device space. ARM chips are what power nearly all of today's major smartphones and tablets, and that's an area that Microsoft wants Windows to invade.

  • Microsoft embraces ARM at BUILD

    Windows on ARMIntel may be celebrating all things x86 at its annual developer forum in San Francisco, but that didn't stop Microsoft from talking up ARM in all of its RISC-based glory at the BUILD conference in Anaheim. Although the two industry heavyweights continue to profess their love for each other, it is quite clear that a definite chill has permeated the once cozy WinTel relationship.

  • Canonical ARMs Ubuntu for microserver wars

    Windows on ARMCanonical is suiting up for the coming microserver wars, confirming that Ubuntu Server 11.10 will run on ARM chips. Just under three years ago when ARM-based netbooks were taking the PC market by storm and iPad tablets were just a gleam in Steve Job's eye, Canonical, the commercial sponsor of the Ubuntu Linux distro, made ARM processors full peers with x64 processors running its Ubuntu Desktop variant.

  • Thinking about RISC with Windows 8

    Windows on ARMAs Microsoft expands the CPU platform support from x86/x64 families into ARM territory with the addition of ARM CPU chips, there are many questions that will be raised for enterprise systems planners and designers. Some of the arguments will go back two decades in terms of the theoretical design differences between CPUs, but in more practical views, the actual impact of two CPU device families supported by Windows needs to be thought through. In the short term, nothing needs to be done; in the long term, deeper questions arise.

  • ARM Could Breath New Life Into Laptops

    Windows on ARMMost laptops today use x86 processors from Intel and Advanced Micro Devices. But chips with ARM processors are smaller and more power-efficient than X86 microprocessors, which should help laptop makers build tablet-like laptops with touchscreens, analysts said. At the same time, however, ARM will face challenges trying to crack into a market where users prize performance.

  • With Windows 8, x86 CPUs Will Lose Ground to ARM

    Windows on ARMWindows 8 is expected to catalyze a shift on the microprocessor (MPU) market, negatively impacting the adoption of traditional x86 CPUs, but nourishing strong growth for ARM processors. IHS iSuppli forecasts that Intel’s x86 architecture, which includes both 32-bit and 64-bit central procession units, will take a hit, uptake-wise, following the launch of Windows 7’s successor, with the market share of ARM chips exploding in the next four years.
